LOS ANGELES — Oscar-winning actress Adele shed tears as she addressed the mass shooting in Orlando, Florida during the latest concert on her ongoing tour.

The 28-year-old actress opened her show in Antwerp, Belgium, on Sunday night, by dedicating her performance to the victims.

“I’d like to start tonight by dedicating this entire show to everybody in Orlando and Pulse nightclub,” the “Hello” hitmaker said and added, “The LGBTQ community… They’re like my soulmates since I was really young,” before starting to cry in front of the cheering crowd.

The Orlando shooting killed 50 people and injured more than 50 others, making it the deadliest mass shooting in US history and the worst act of terrorism since 2001’s 9/11.

The GRAMMY winner later attempted to lighten the mood with a little bit of self-deprecation.

“I didn’t want to cry, really, because most of this tonight is pretty miserable — because my songs are f**king miserable,” she joked.

The District Police Office, organising a press conference on Monday,had made public Dilip Singh Bista (41), of Baghphanta, Bhimdatta Municipality-19 as Nirmala’s murderer.

Locals have shut down the market area stating that police were not being able to make public the true murderer(s) as they are not convinced by the findings of police citing that Bista was mentally unsound, according to the District Police Office.

Transportation has also been halted.

Bista, a resident of Khanna Chauraha area in Bhimdutta Municipality-19, was apprehended near the scene of crime on Sunday, according to police.

Police making public the wrong suspect has infuriated the locals and fueled the protest.

The agitators including various civil society organisations and human rights defenders have been picketing the District Administration Office and staging rally on the street mounting pressure on the police to reveal the facts behind the heinous crime.

Meanwhile, it had been learnt that police have fired rounds of teargas shells to contain the agitated mob.

Nirmala was found murdered in a sugarcane field on July 27, a day after she had gone to her friend’s home to get a notebook.
