This is the shocking moment a groom accidentally shot his mate after firing a shot in celebration of his wedding.
Manish Madheshia allegedly fired the stray bullet that killed an army pal at his wedding in north India.
Cops confirmed the victim as Babu Lal Yadav, 35, who said goodbye and traveled halfway across the country to attend his pal’s wedding.
Terrifying footage shows Madheshia getting quite excited as she hands over the gun and fires it in celebration.
The groom fired a shot into the air before getting ready to fire another as he allegedly accidentally pointed the gun at his friend and pulled the trigger.
Footage showed the moment the live round hit Yadav, who was wearing a white t-shirt. Suddenly he fell to the ground.
Police officers confiscated the licensed handgun and arrested Madheshia and several others for questioning.
Yadav was pronounced dead upon arrival at the hospital.
