New Delhi: A young man from Uttar Pradesh was accidentally shot dead by his teenaged cousin whose photographs he was clicking in south Delhi, police said on Friday.
The incident occurred on Thursday evening when Prashant, 23, was clicking Rishabh’s photos at the latter’s residence in Madanpur Khadar, where he had arrived to attend a relative’s wedding, a senior police officer told IANS.
“While Rishab’s mother Mangesh was busy making preparations to attend the wedding, Rishabh took out his businessman father Pramod Chauhan’s licensed pistol from an almirah and began performing stunts.
