A woman, part of a dance group, is said to be critical after she was shot in the face because she stopped dancing at a wedding in Uttar Pradesh on December 1. In the incident’s video, a man is heard saying “Goli chal jayegi” if she doesn’t resume dancing, following which another man says, “Ho hi jaye ek fire.”
The news agency PTI reports that two people who fired shots, Sudhir Singh and Phool Singh, have been arrested.
The dancer, 22, suffered an injury to her jaw but is said to be out of danger. Two others were injured.
