As per rituals, Bride was walking off the stage, Somebody shot her and she fell to the ground

In an appalling case reported from the National Capital, a 19-year-old bride was shot at in Shakarpur area of Delhi. The bride staggered while climbing the stage for exchanging garlands, then the groom soon realised that she got hit by a bullet to her leg.

The bullet was fired by an unidentified person, due to which, the woman received injuries in her leg. She was rushed to a nearby hospital where she was treated. According to news agency ANI, the survivor bride was identified as Pooja. After her treatment, she resumed her wedding rituals and got married to Bharat.

“A bullet brushed past her legs, so we went to the hospital. Police was later called,” the groom, Bharat, told news agency ANI.

Police, however, has launched an investigation in the case. According to Delhi Police, the attacker was known by the bride. However, the groom told the agency that he could not identify the miscreant.

The attacker is absconding and further investigation is underway to find out whether the firing was intentional or not. The attacker is yet to be ascertained.

In a similar incident reported last November, a groom was shot by two miscreants as he rode his chariot for his wedding in  Delhi. However, the groom bandaged and returned in just three hours after his surgery. The couple then performed their wedding rituals.
