Despite a ban on carrying firearms in marriage palaces, a 24-year-old orchestra dancer was allegedly shot dead by an drunk man at Ashirwad marriage palace, Maur Mandi, in the district late on Saturday night.
A video of the incident that was posted on social media sites shows a man who is dancing and holding a .12-bore rifle
fires in the air when a bullet pierces through the head of the dancer, indentified as Kulwinder Kaur.
Meanwhile, police said they have registered a case against four persons, including two friends of the accused and the owner of the banquet hall.
“The accused is on the run. We are trying to trace him and have registered a case under IPC’s Section 302,” a police official said.
Three dancers were on the stage and Kulwinder Kaur had joined them a minute before she collapsed after being hit by the gun shot.
The video, which revealed the face of the man who fired the
shot, also showed children dancing beside another man who continuously fired with a revolver.
Various orchestra groups in Bathinda held a protest and blocked the road outside the Bathinda Civil Hospital on Sunday in protest against the incident.
