A 22-year-old dancer at a marriage function in Punjab's Bathinda district, was killed when a drunk man, enraged at being refused a dance on stage, fired at her from close range, police said on Sunday.


The victim, Kulwinder Kaur, had refused to dance with a guest who was drunk, and was carrying a weapon with which he fired at her in a fit of rage later.

Police have registered a case of murder and booked four people – the alleged killer, the marriage palace owner and two friends of the killer.

Station House Officer (SHO) Daljit Singh said that the accused was absconding after the incident.

The incident took place late on Saturday evening during a marriage function at Aashirwad Marriage Palace in Maur Mandi town of Bathinda.

Kulwinder Kaur, who was reportedly two-months pregnant, fell on the stage even as her colleagues of the dance and orchestra troupe continued their performance. They realised only moments later that she had collapsed.
