The bride’s family was asked to pay an additional sum of INR10 lacs right at the time of the nikkah. According to the Pakistani rupee, the amount is roughly Rs31 lacs.
It was a demand that became impossible for them to meet.
The bridegroom’s father threatened to cancel the wedding provided the amount is not given. The bride’s male relatives tried to reason with them but it was of no avail. The situation got out of hand and they began to assault the bridegroom.
The viral video then saw the wedding guests getting physical as well. The bridegroom’s family relatives managed to escape from the scene.
