india, woman marries man, groom late

(Alamy)

Bride's family locked up the groom and his family, thrashed them and snatched their valuables.

Angered over late arrival of the groom for wedding, a bride from Uttar Pradesh, India,  got married to another man instead.

According to reports in TOI, the groom was supposed to arrive for the wedding at 2:00 pm but instead turned up only late in the night. The bride refused to get married to the groom and instead tied the knot with a local man.

It is reported that the couple had already got married at a mass wedding program in October and were set to marry again in a "proper" ceremony on December 4. It is also reported that the couple's families had growing differences over dowry demands which escalated when the groom arrived late for the wedding.

The bride's family reportedly locked up the groom and his family, thrashed them and snatched their valuables. "Both the families have approached the police. They reached a compromise. But the bride did not want to go with the groom. There was no written complaint from either side," said police official.

Police further added that the matter was resolved amicably when the couple divorced and the bride married another man.
