A HIRED dancer has been hospitalised after being shot in the face because she stopped performing at a wedding in India.
The incident happened during a wedding celebration on December 1 in a village in Uttar Pradesh state.
It only came to light days later when the video was widely shared online.
In the clip, the woman is seen dancing on a stage with another girl.
She stops, a gunshot is then heard and she falls down while clutching her face.
Police told the BBC they have identified the shooter in the video, who is on the run.
A spokesman said: “The suspect is on the run but we are confident that we will arrest him soon.”
