A man from Uttar Pradesh’s Amroha allegedly refused to marry a woman because she spent too much time on Whatsapp. The groom did not show up at the bride’s house where the wedding ceremony was to take place. Allegedly, he also said that he would marry only if Rs 65 lakh was given to him.
On Setember 5, the bride’s family was waiting to welcome the groom and his family but Qamar haider, the groom did not show up till late evening. The bride’s father sent his brother to Qamar’s house to find out what happened.
NDTV quoted the bride’s father Urooj Mehandi saying, “They refused to marry my daughter alleging that she is not good as she spends too much time on WhatsApp. Later, when we pleaded, they agreed to the nikah but demanded a dowry of Rs. 65 lakh.” Even after Urooj pleaded, Qamar refused to budge.
The bride’s father went to the local police station on the same night to file a complaint. “Family of a girl alleged that the groom’s side on wedding day refused to marry her saying ‘the girl isn’t good as she uses WhatsApp’. Then they demanded a dowry of Rs. 65 lakh,” NDTV quoted senior officer at Amroha Vipin Tada saying.
