In a shocking incident, a woman in Chitrakoot, Uttar Pradesh is battling for her life after she was shot in the face on December 1 when she had stopped dancing at a wedding ceremony. The incident has been captured on a video where the woman is seen on the stage with a co-performer.
In the video, a man apparently drunk can be heard saying, "Goli chal jayegi (shots will be fired)" after the victim stopped dancing.
"Sudhir bhaiya, aap Goli chala hi do (Brother, you should fire the gun)," said another man in the clip.
The woman is then shot at from behind. The bullet hits her face.
The incident took place December 1 during a performance at a wedding where the village head was also present. Reportedly, one of the village head's family member had shot at the woman.
The case has been filed against unknown men, according to the police.
"We are trying to arrest the accused. We are making all the efforts to bring the culprit to justice," senior police officer Ankit Mittal said.
The woman is admitted at a hospital in Kanpur.
