In a shocking incident, a woman dancer has been shot dead on stage during a wedding function in Bhatinda, Punjab.
Allegedly the shooter was drunk when he shot 22-year old after she refused to dance with him.
The dancer named Kulwinder Kaur was performing with her dance troop at the marriage function of a local commission agent’s son in Maur.
