In a very bizarre incident, a bride called off her wedding as the groom failed to count the currency notes. The incident took place in Uttar Pradesh’s Farrukhabad district. According to the reports, a 21-year-old bride called off her wedding when the groom failed to count currency notes. During the marriage rituals, the priest got doubt over the behaviour of the man and informed the family members of the girl. The bride, Rita Singh, immediately walked off from the dais and it lead to a verbal spat between the family members of the bride and groom. The bride’s family said that they were unaware that the groom was ‘mentally weak’.
Mohit, the bride’s brother, said, “Marriages usually happen in good faith and the mediator was a close relative, so we trusted him and did not meet the guy. When the priest told us about his odd behaviour, we decided to conduct a test and gave him 30 currency notes of Rs 10 to count which he could not. After knowing about his condition, Rita refused to marry him.”
The matter reached the police station. SHO Anil Kumar Chaube said, “No police complaint has been filed in the matter yet.”
