Chandigarh: In a shocking incident, a pregnant woman dancer was killed in a firing incident during a wedding in Punjab's Bathinda on Saturday evening.
Kulwinder Kaur was shot in the stomach while performing on stage and died on the spot.
A case has been registered against a man called Billa.
The incident took place at Aashirwad Marriage Palace in Maur Mandi town.
Kaur, who was reportedly two months pregnant, fell on the stage even as her colleagues and orchestra troupe continued their performance.
Only moments later they realised that she had collapsed, as per media reports.
Kulwinder's body was sent to the civil hospital. She was declared dead on arrival.
Some reports said that the woman died in celebratory firing. But Kulwinder's husband Harjinder Singh has a different version.
NDTV quoted him as saying, "They had been asking her to get off the stage and join them... but she refused... so they shot her."
Meanwhile, a video, being circulated on social media, shows her getting shot and collapsing to the ground.
On the other hand, Daljeet Singh (SHO) said, "Accused is on the run, we are trying to trace him."
