Marriage celebrations turned into gloom when the bridegroom died during celebratory firing in the Guhla area of the district last night. Two of his friends, who are brothers, suffered injuries and were hospitalised.

According to information, the marriage of Vikram Vohra was scheduled for today. Ladies ‘sangeet’ was going on in the house last evening.

After the women went inside the house, the bridegroom and his friends started dancing. During celebratory firing, a bullet hit the bridegroom and splinters hit his friends.

Vikramjeet Waraich, Navtej Waraich and Vikram were rushed to a Patiala hospital, where the bridegroom was declared brought dead.

Vikramjeet was admitted to the hospital while his younger brother Navtej was taken to the PGI in Chandigarh. According to family sources, Vikram had settled down in Australia and had recently come to India for his marriage.

People rushed to the deceased’s house to condole the tragedy. Former Rajya Sabha member Ishwar Singh, Guhla MLA Kulwant Bajigar and former MLAs Dillu Ram, Phool Singh Kheri and Buta Singh visited the house to condole the death.

Police and forensic experts visited the spot. Guhla SHO Satya Pal said a case was registered and statements of the injured would be taken.
