An eight-year-old girl was killed after some men opened celebratory gunfire in Lahore’s Manawan neighbourhood.

The child went up to the roof of her house to watch a passing barat (wedding procession). Members of the procession fired in the air in celebration and one of the bullets hit the girl.

A case has been lodged against the groom and his friend but they haven’t been arrested yet.
