Indian police on Tuesday arrested a man accused of killing a bridegroom when he marked his friend’s wedding with gunfire, the latest in a grim series of marriage celebrations gone wrong.

A video of Sunil Verma, 25, being hit in the chest late Sunday as he performed Hindu wedding rituals has gone viral on Indian social media.

The footage shows a man identified as a friend of Verma adjusting a pistol when it goes off. The next moment, the groom is seen clutching his chest and slumping face down.

“He has confessed to the shooting but the investigations will continue. We have recovered the murder weapon,” Ghanshyam Chaurasia, investigating officer in the Lakhimpur Kheri district of Uttar Pradesh state, said.

The shooter, who could face a murder charge, was on the run until his arrest on Tuesday in a neighboring town.

Police said two shots were fired from the licensed pistol belonging to the friend.

Although outlawed in India, celebratory gunfire at weddings and other social events is common and sometimes deadly.

A 20-year-old man was killed at his cousin’s wedding on Sunday after revellers fired live ammunition to celebrate the event in neighbouring Allahabad district.

The shooter, a relative of the groom, is also on the run, police said.

And in February, during celebratory gunfire at a wedding in the capital New Delhi, the groom was hit by a stray bullet and killed.

France won the Fifa World Cup for the second time by overcoming Croatia’s bold challenge in a thrilling final in Moscow’s Luzhniki Stadium.

Didier Deschamps’ side repeated the success on home soil at France ’98 by a margin that hardly looked possible as Croatia stood toe-to-toe with the favourites for an hour.

France’s victory meant Deschamps, who captained them 20 years ago, became just the third man to win the competition as a player and coach.

Croatia also felt their luck deserted them, but ultimately France ran out victorious to erase the memories of the loss to Portugal in the Euro 2016 final in Paris.

Alalo noted in a statement issued in Mogadishu that the traffic police officers will play a major role in the sensitization campaign both at the federal and state levels.

“Depending on funding, we intend to extend this training to every traffic police officer in Mogadishu and the federal member states,” Alalo said while closing a 10-day training organized for 25 traffic police officers, drawn from various police stations in the city.

Alalo said the objective of the training was to address the traffic challenges currently faced due to increased number of vehicles and other modes of transport on the city’s roads.

“When you see so many vehicles; Bajajs (motorcycle cabs) and donkeys in the town, it comes with challenges and the challenge is the indiscipline on the road,” she added.

Alalo urged the officers to work closely with community members to not only help in strengthening the rule of law but also promoting peace and security.

Bashir Abdi Mohamed Somali, Police Force Commissioner said the training will help the officers in enforcing traffic rules.

It is expected that the training will enable the officers enforce traffic laws to curb indiscipline on roads and also minimize accidents.
