Hyderabad | A bridegroom who allegedly fired in the air during his own wedding was arrested by the city police.

Assistant Commissioner of Police Mohd Abdul Bari said that Mohd Mohsin alias Irfan surrendered before the police and handed over two “dummy” weapons and four bullets.

Police lodged a case under the Arms Act today after the incident, which took place on August 22, came to light.

“He confessed that he had opened fire in the air from two dummy weapons during the celebration of his nikah on the night of August 22 and the weapons caused only sound and spark,” the ACP said.
