A 13-year-old girl was killed in Haryana’s Mewat district in firing that took place after her family objected to some songs being played at a neighbouring house during a wedding ceremony, police said on Friday.

Police were yet to arrest anyone.

Police said the incident occurred late Friday night during the marriage of Dinu’s son Yahbudi, a resident of Biwan village in Haryana’s Mewat district.

The police complaint stated that Dinu’s neighbour Israel and a few villagers were objecting to the loud songs being played during the wedding.

In his complaint, Israel stated that when he along with other villagers objected to playing such songs around 2 a.m, some people opened fire.

In the firing, Israel’s 13-year-old daughter Swahalia was killed on the spot when a bullet hit her forehead.

Police have booked a group of people including Shokeen, Naseen, Sakeen, Haku and others under various sections of the Indian Penal Code, including murder.
