The wedding season has given several videos and photos from the weddings taking place all across the globe. Some videos and photos became viral as well, ranging from happy moments to absurd ones. However, one such video has gone viral in recent times. The now-viral video shows the groom being thrashed at his wedding that took place on Friday at a banquet hall in the Sahibabad area of Uttar Pradesh’s Ghaziabad.
In a shocking incident in the northern Indian state of Uttar Pradesh, the family members of a bride physically manhandled the groom and his relatives after being forced to pay dowry.
The report said that the bride’s family had already given INR3 lacs along with a diamond ring costing INR1 lacs in dowry. The bride’s family was asked to pay an additional sum of INR10 lacs right at the time of the Nikkah. It was a demand that became impossible for them to fulfill.
The bridegroom’s father threatened to call off the wedding if the demand was not met. The bride’s male relatives tried to reason with them but it was of no use. The situation got out of hand and they began to assault the bridegroom.
