In a rather bizarre incident, a marriage in Uttar Pradesh was called off by the groom’s family at the last moment for an unusual reason -WhatsApp!
The incident happened in Naugaon Sadat area of Amroha district on Wednesday. The bride and her family were waiting for the groom at the reception center when they were told over the phone that the marriage was called off.
According to the bride’s family, the groom’s parent alleged that the girl was addicted to WhatsApp and was spending too much time on her phone.
They even had a problem with the bride sending messages on WhatsApp to her in-laws before the marriage!
Rejecting the claim, the bride’s family said that the real reason for the groom kin to call off the proposed alliance was dowry. The bride’s father, Uroj Mehandi said the groom’s family was demanding a dowry of Rs 65 lakhs, for which the girl’s family had filed a police complaint.
