In a bizarre incident, a bride was left battling for life after a jilted lover opened fire at her for rejecting his proposal and marrying another man. The bride was sitting on the stage at the wedding hall when the accused barged in and opened fire at the bride.

“Tu Bas Meri Hai. Meri Nahin Huyi Toh Kisi Aur Ki Bhi Hone Nahin Dunga,” the youth shouted as he opened fire at the bride. The heinous incident has been reported from Rawalpindi in neighbouring Pakistan. The accused has been identified as Owasi, 23, according to a report in Dawn.

Mohammad Ali, a resident of Shah Khalid Colony, told police that his daughter was sitting on the stage at the wedding hall on the eve of her marriage when Owasi opened fire at her, injuring her critically.

The accused was on the run after committing the crime when a police patrol nabbed him. The injured has been shifted to a hospital and the accused landed in lockup.
