A day after an 18-year-old girl lost her life in a celebratory firing in Delhi’s Mangolpuri, a 10-year-old child was killed and two others were grievously injured in a celebratory firing during a wedding ceremony in Bihar's Arrah on Tuesday.
According to reports, the children were standing in their balcony to watch the wedding procession when a bullet struck them. The three injured children were rushed to a hospital after which one of them succumbed to his injuries.
Aghast by the death of their child, the family members of the deceased 10-year-old vented their ire at the hospital’s medical staff, accusing them of negligence.
Earlier in Delhi, the girl, Anjali, succumbed to her injuries after she was shot at during the celebratory firing at a wedding procession.
Reacting to increasing cases of deaths due to celebratory firing, former IPS officer and BJP leader Kiran Bedi asserted that such incidents were the reflection of a lawless culture and called for stricter and harsher punishment for those who indulged in such activities.
