A video of a couple holding a gun and firing in the air at their wedding in Ghaziabad near Delhi has gone viral on social media, prompting a probe by the police.
The video shows the groom firing two shots as the smiling bride poses with him. The incident took place in Ghaziabad near Delhi.
Celebratory firings are all too common in parts of north India, even though there have often been casualties and police action.
In August, two people were arrested for firing shots at a birthday celebration in Delhi. The man was identified after video of him firing shots in the air at the celebration organised on the rooftop of a house in outer Delhi’s east Paschim Vihar was widely shared on social media.
