A woman in Odisha’s Rourkela town has cancelled her wedding and lodged a complaint against the bridegroom accusing him of misbehaving with her family members in an inebriated state, the police said.

The woman in her bridal attire rushed to the police station and lodged an FIR against the bridegroom. She was to be married on Sunday night at a temple, the police said.

Shankar Panda, 28, a resident of Bondhmunda had arrived with his friends for the wedding, allegedly got drunk and misbehaved with the bride’s father and brother.

Upset at the turn of events, the bride declared that she was cancelling the wedding and filed a complaint with the Tangarpalli police station against the bridegroom, his elder brother and others.

The police soon detained Shankar Panda and his elder brother.

The woman said, “I cannot marry a person who misbehaved with my family under the influence of alcohol.”

“I am sorry for what I did and I want to marry the woman,” Shankar said and claimed that his friends had mixed liquor with green coconut and cold drinks and made him drink it.
