The incident occurred at Savitri Marriage Palace in Karnal. Deva Thakur, along with six to seven persons, came to attend the ceremony. All of them were carrying arms.

Sumit Bhatia, manager of the venue, said the Sadhvi and her accomplices started firing indiscriminately during the function. “As soon as the firing started, we called the police as this is not allowed. In the meantime, the pistol of one of them got stuck. While rectifying it, a shot was fired causing injuries to those present,” he said.

The victim, Suman (50) succumbed to her injuries. Devi Thakur and the rest had fled from the spot.

                What kind of Sadhvi is she? What does "Sadhvi" mean? If it means the "enlightened one who has known the "Brahmam" within and is able to merge it with the ever pervading, Omnipotent, Omniscient and the Omnipresent "Parabrahmam", then why this reckless show of trappings of power. See, an innocent woman is killed and the wedding party was terrorized. Compensation should be paid to those who have been affected. The government should book her immediately and ensure the the ends of justice are met adequately.
