A dancer was shot in the face at a wedding in India after she had stopped for a break between songs.
The 22-year-old, only referred to as Hina, performed on Saturday at a ceremony for the daughter of a village leader in Uttar Pradesh province when someone in the crowd opened fire.
Two men, identified by the police as Sudhir Singh and Phool Singh, were arrested Friday after the video of the shooting was widely distributed on social media.

The images show Hina and a fellow dancer, named Naina in the local media, performing on stage with a line of people behind them.
While the song stops, the couple stops dancing, after which the audience can shout at them.
A first shot can be heard, but no one in the crowd seems to respond.
Hina and Naina then turn around and face the line of people sitting behind them and seem to talk to someone out of reach.
According to the Indian news site, one voice can be heard that says: & # 39; Shots will be fired & # 39; NDTV, before another voice answers: & # 39; Brother, you must fire the gun. & # 39;
A second, louder shot is heard as Hina grabs her face and wobbles around the sage before the video stops.
She was taken to the hospital in a critical condition with a wound on her jaw, but has since stabilized and is now recovering.

The mother's uncles of the groom, Mithilesh and Akhilesh, who were then on stage, were also injured in the shooting.
The incident was first reported to the police by the uncles, who said they had identified the alleged shooters as a relative of the bride's father.
Intentional shootings and accidental deaths occur relatively frequently at weddings in India, where guests often bring firearms during the celebration.
Kulwinder Kaur, a 25-year-old pregnant dancer, was shot in the belly during a performance at a wedding in 2016. She died on the spot.
In November of the same year, a self-proclaimed god-wife killed three including the aunt of the groom after shooting festive shots at a wedding in the state of Haryana.
And in 2018, the Punjab police arrested a man after allegedly accidentally shot his neighbor at a pre-wedding party.
