While the nation was lighting ‘Diyas and Candles’ on Prime Minister’s call yesterday night this lady had some more in store. BJP Mahila Ziladhyaksh Manju Tiwari from Uttar Pradesh’s Balrampur fired ‘Gun shot’. A video of her is going viral on social media.
As the video created much outrage, Balrampur police said it was registering a case against her. In the video, Manju is seen pointing a revolver towards the sky at an angle before firing a shot. A man belonging of her family could be heard cheering for her after she fired the bullet. She is booked under Section 286 (negligent conduct with respect to explosive substance) of the Indian Penal Code.
Section 30 of the Arms Act 1959 is also levied on her. The lady, however, apologized for her action later. She said that she got carried away by the ‘Deepavali-like’ atmosphere in her city. “When I came out I saw the entire city decorated with earthen lamps and candles. I felt excitement like it was Deepavali“, she said.
