Twenty-two-year old Jagatpuri-resident Shikha's eight month engagement to Noida-native Kunal was called off as her father was unable to raise enough cash because of the demonetization of currency notes.The couple were set to get mariied on November 25.

"The groom's family was demanding a high-end car, diamond jewellery and cash. We couldn't raise enough cash to fulfill their demands owing to the note ban and they called off the marriage," Tilak Raj Singh, an uncle of the bride, told IANS.

Shikha's father Indrajeet Mehta, a businessman in Delhi, could manage to raise only Rs 2.5 lakh due to the restraints following the demonetisation of 500 and 1,000 rupee notes by the government.

"We will move the court against them," he added.
