A heated argument over food sent to the groom’s side by the bride’s family led to the wedding being called off on Monday.

It all started when the girl’s family prepared 30 kg of chicken biryani and sent it to the groom’s side. The groom’s family was upset as they do not eat chicken. The issue was resolved soon. However, it was brought up again at the wedding on Sunday night where it got blown out of proportion.

Seeing how events were unfolding, the bride refused to get hitched, police said. Seeing the groom’s family’s behaviour prior to the wedding, she wondered how she would be treated after marriage, they added.

The groom’s family decided not to mend fences and took back the mehar that had been given to the bride, police said. The girl’s family filed a complaint with the KG Halli police. Both families live on Tannery Road. The boy works in Dubai. The marriage was scheduled for March 9 (Sunday) and 10 (Monday).
