Popular Bhojpuri singer Nisha Upadhyay received a bullet injury allegedly in a celebratory firing at her show in Bihar's Saran district, police said on Thursday.

"No complaint was lodged. I came to know about it from social media. Further information is being gathered," said Nasruddin Khan, SHO, Janta Bazar police station.

Her condition is said to be stable.

Condemning it, Art and Culture Minister Jitendra Kumar Rai told PTI that celebratory firing is a criminal offence and people must understand it.

"I have been informed about it. It's highly condemnable and action must be initiated against the accused. People must know that celebratory firing even with licensed guns at public gatherings, religious places, weddings or other functions is a criminal offence. The accused must be punished," he said.

"I am sure the police will examine how the incident took place, who all were involved in the firing, and how the gunshot was fired," he added.
