A 12-year-old boy was killed in celebratory firing during a wedding ceremony in outer Delhi, police said on Wednesday. The incident was reported from Shahbad Dairy on Tuesday and the victim has been identified as Amit.

Amit had gone to attend his cousin Sunita's wedding where a relative of the groom opened fire in the air to celebrate the occasion.
