High drama at marriage ceremony, grooms arrested
A wedding of two brothers with two sisters in Mathura ended with the two grooms cooling their heels behind bars after they clashed with the family of the girls demanding extra cash and articles in dowry.
Six persons from both sides were injured in the clash that followed the heated altercation.
Police said a marriage party came from Hathras to Mant Mula village for the ceremony.
As soon as they reached the venue of the wedding here on Monday night and saw the articles kept to be given as dowry, they created a ruckus and demanded extra cash and a motorcycle, police said on Wdnesday.
"In spite of sufficient dowry, both the bridegrooms were demanding motorcycle and one lakh cash. Since it was a question of marriage of my two daughters, we tried to persuade them.
"However, when they started damaging dowry articles, we were left with no option but to inform police and file a report against them," Satto, the mother of the girls said in the FIR.
Six persons from both sides were injured in the clash that followed the heated altercation, police said.
The clash stopped when police came to the spot and arrested both the grooms Ravi and Ajit of Kursanda village of Hathras district.
