In a totally unexpected turn of events, a groom was shot by two gunmen as he rode a chariot to his wedding in New Delhi.
But the groom did manage to make a return just hours later after surgery and took his vows.
Police said that the attackers are yet unidentified but added that they mingled with wedding guests dancing in an extravagant street procession.
It was then that the 25-year-old groom made his way to the ceremony at Madangir area.
Police said the pair climbed onto the horse-drawn carriage and opened fire before fleeing amid the panic.
Though the groom was struck in the shoulder and had to be rushed to hospital, the doctors stemmed the bleeding but could not remove the bullet easily without major surgery.
The groom was thus bandaged up and returned to his bride-to-be just three hours later and performed his wedding rituals.
Police are searching for the two suspects, who have not been found.
They have not established a motive for the brazen attack but said it did not appear to be a random act of violence.>
