Saharanpur: A bride walked out of her marriage ceremony protesting the demand for an SUV by the groom's family, the police said on Monday.
The incident occurred here Sunday night during the ceremony when the groom made the demand and threatened to call off the marriage, Additional superintendent of police Prabal Pratap Singh said.
Angry over the sudden demand, the bride's family members closed the doors of the banquet hall, not allowing the groom's family to leave the venue, he said.
Both sides tried to negotiate the demand but all attempts failed as the groom was not ready to budge, the officer said.
"Seeing that the groom was adamant, the woman walked out of the marriage," the ASP said.
