A minor boy killed in firing at Agra’s wedding. The family says that it is a planned murder. However, police are examining the case of a 16-year-old boy who died when a bullet hit him from a point-blank range at a wedding in Uttar Pradesh’s Agra.
The incident took place on Thursday in Agra’s Khandauli area in the morning around 3-4 am, as per the Times of India reported.
Two persons have been booked for murder. Police are now into action and scanning the CCTV footage of the wedding to confirm if the shooting was deliberate.
The victim has been identified as Class 10 student Dharmendra Singh who is the cousin of the groom. He has come to Agra to attend the wedding of Rajasthan.
If we talk about the gun, it belongs to a retired Army man. He had given him to the 19-year-old accused Vivek ‘to have a closer look at it.”
Further, police said that it might be a case of ‘mishandling of a loaded gun’. After taking the gun, Vivek pulled the trigger which then hit the victim. The CCTV footage showed that Dharmendra was with four other people when the bullet hit him. Dharmendra was rushed to hospital, but he succumbed to his injuries on the way. The police said three bullets were fired, out of which one hit the victim.
However, the Station house officer of Khandauli police station Arvind Kumar Nirwal said that an FIR had been lodged against Gyanendra Singh and Vivek, under relevant sections of the Indian Penal Code.
