A bride ran away with her boyfriend in Kanpur while en route to the wedding venue from the beauty parlour where she went to get ready. As a result, the groom and his wedding procession returned home. The woman's father has filed an FIR in the matter and police are in search of the woman.
The incident happened on Tuesday (January 30) in Kanpur's Chaubepur village. The bride, accompanied by her friend, went to the beauty parlour to get ready for the ceremony. Dressed in a red outfit, the bride later left for the wedding venue after getting ready. However, she allegedly fled with her boyfriend while en route.
When the bride's family enquired about her, they found out that the bride had not returned home from the beauty parlour and had run away with her boyfriend. Then, they informed the groom about the incident, who, along with the wedding procession, went home.
According to the information, the bride's family has been residing in Lucknow for 25 years, and she was involved in a relationship with a man there. However, her family was not in favour of the relationship and wanted her to get married to someone from their community. Hence, they went back to their native village of Chaubepur in Kanpur.
ACP Vijay Dhull told India Today that the woman was already in touch with the boy over the phone, and was against getting married as per her family's wishes.
Meanwhile, the groom's family said that there was no reason for the bride's side to approach them with the marriage when they already knew she was in a relationship with someone else. They added it would have saved them from humiliation.
The bride's family, on the other hand, are in shock and are not ready to talk about the incident.
