Aligarh (Uttar Pradesh): A 24-year-old man was shot dead allegedly during a fight between two groups in Uttar Pradesh's Aligarh, police said on Wednesday.

According to officials, the fight broke out between two groups at a wedding in the Lodhi Vihar area of Aligarh. The deceased was identified as Bhura Pandit alias Bittu Sharma (24).
