The police have registered a case after a groom was injured in celebratory firing during a wedding ceremony in Haryana’s Hisar.

“We have registered a case on the basis of the statement of the injured person’s father,” station house officer Mandeep Singh told ANI.

The incident comes after another man was hit and killed by a bullet apparently fired by celebrating members of his wedding party in Uttar Pradesh in February. The groom, who fell from his horse after being hit, was taken to hospital in Lucknow where doctors declared him dead.

Although outlawed, celebratory firing at weddings and other events is common in the country, across South Asia and in other regions.

In February, an eight-year-old boy was killed in Shamli district when ruling political party workers fired shots to celebrate their victory in municipal elections.
