KANPUR: An Army soldier died on Tuesday after he was shot by his own rifle in Kanpur. The soldier was in town to visit the reception of a friend when the incident took place in Chakeri in Kanpur.

The sister of the victim has raised doubts over the death of her brother questioning how he was hit in the chest. "We received a call, they told us he was shot at the wedding ceremony. Later we received a call and they told us he died. They are saying he was shot by his own rifle after someone accidentally hit it with legs but how was he hit in the chest," the sister questioned.
