Video Surfaces of Woman Shot for ‘Pausing Dance’ at Wedding in UP



A dancer has been hospitalised after being shot in the face because she stopped performing at a wedding. In a video of the incident, the woman is seen dancing on a stage. She pauses, a gunshot is heard, and the woman falls down while holding her face.

According to police, they have identified the shooter in the video who is on the run. The incident happened during a wedding celebration on 1 December in a village in Uttar Pradesh state. However, it only came to light days later, after the video was widely shared on messaging platforms.

“The suspect is on the run but we are confident that we will arrest him soon,” police said.

Wedding violence is a common phenomenon in certain parts of the country, where many guests carry guns – mostly to fire in the air to celebrate the occasion. However, with revelries getting out of control, violence is not uncommon. A similar incident occurred in 2016 in the northern state of Punjab, when a pregnant woman was killed after she was shot in the stomach while performing a dance at a wedding.
