A man was arrested on Thursday for firing in the air at a wedding in Delhi. The action was taken after a video of the incident went viral.
The video shows the man – wearing party attire – holds a black gun over his head and says “Video banao (record the video)”. He then fires a bullet in the air.

He fired at the marriage of his cousin.
