An Indian wedding turned to horror when the bride was shot dead as she said her vows by a cousin who believed that she had cheated on him
Dr Jaishri Namdeo, 29, was standing with her husband-to-be on a stage, in the city of Bhopal, when Anurag Singh stormed up the aisle and shot her at point blank range. Anurag, who had entered the wedding disguised as a photographer, then attempted to shoot himself but missed and grazed a nearby guest, allowing witnesses to tackle him to the ground. They then disarmed the shooter and beat him violently until police arrived. Dr Namdeo, a pediatrician, died later in hospital from a single wound to the neck. Her husband, Rohit Namdeo, a surgeon, survived the attack.
