A minor died and three others were injured in a clash between two groups at a marriage function in Kotkapura town of Punjab on Sunday.

One of the injured is serious. A group, led by one Ankush, was drinking at the marriage function on Saturday night, when another group, led by one Gurlal Singh, came there and started firing at them indiscriminately.

Both the groups engaged in firing for sometime, in which a bullet hit 16-year-old Lovpreet Singh, who later died, police said.

Ankush was seriously injured and had been admitted to a hospital in Ludhiana. Gurlal and his companion were also injured.

An old enmity between Ankush and Gurlal is said to be the cause of the dispurte which led to the firing.

Police have registered a case, but no arrest has been made till now.
