Snapshot - and Delete Indice

What will happen to a in_progress snapshot if a indice participating in the snapshot gets removed using DELETE

Assuming that there are multiple indices participate in snapshot, and a heavy sized data, which is spread across.

Because, I issued a snapshot request which ran for 3 hrs appx, but a job kick-started which deleted one of the indices participating in the snapshot. Irrespective of this the snapshot status became SUCCESS after some time. I'm not sure how the snapshot behavior handle the scenario.

Though there is a note in documentation that shard movement may not happen, the case here is indice is removed.

Thanks for clarification

I am not sure but I think the snapshot will be representing a partial set of documents since the index was deleted in between.
