Such incidents of injury and death during wedding celebrations are not a new thing. Recently, in March, two such incidents took place in Meerut and Baghpat areas of Uttar Pradesh in which a 16-year-old girl was wounded and another man was killed respectively.
An eight-year-old boy also lost his life in Shamli district of Uttar Pradesh in February this year where Samajwadi Party workers were celebrating victory of their candidate in a local poll.
