In a shocking incident, a bride called off her wedding just a few hours before the final ceremony took place. The incident took place in Uttar Pradesh’s Meerut last week.
The bride took the big decision due to the bad behavior of the groom’s relative.
The 22-year-old bride identified as Iram cancelled her wedding with Shahzad after her uncle was injured in celebratory gunfire. According to the IANS report, the firing was done by the groom’s guests at the wedding venue.
“If his family is behaving this way in front of my whole family, how will they behave when I will be alone with them at their place?” Iram was quoted as saying.
Reportedly, when the bride called off her wedding with Shahzad, her family members broke the groom’s car, thrashed his relatives, and also held them, hostage, for some time. After being alerted about the incident, police reached the spot and brought the situation under control.
According to Senior sub-inspector Ravindra Palawat of the Kharkhoda police station, the video footage of the wedding ceremony is being investigated to identify those who opened fire.
Meanwhile, an FIR has been registered against the groom Shahzad, his brother Pappu and Sanu under section 307 (attempt to murder). If the bullet was fired from a licensed weapon, a report of the cancellation of the arms license will be sent,” he added.
The woman's uncle, who got injured during the celebratory gun fire, is said to be in a stable condition.
