Constable's celebratory firing kills 2 at wedding

Constable Ramanand has been arrested while the other accused Mithilesh Kumar is absconding, a police spokesman said. The victims Devi Prasad Sharma and Dilip Kumar Mishra, both in early 40s, died on the spot. The incident occurred in  Ghanshyam Sharma’s house during marriage ceremony of his daughter in Kalandarpur village.

Ramanand and Mithilesh Kumar fired repeatedly from their licenced 12 bore single barrel guns. “When they were loading the guns, the barrels instead of being raised towards the sky, were pointed towards the guests. Two bullets hit the two persons who were also from the groom’s side,” police said.
