The marriage of Brijlal’s son Tulsiram was arranged with Rekha the daughter of Bachau of Bhusu ka Inara village in Pratapgarh district.
On the big day the marriage party arrived and the ceremony started when the bride realised that the youth sitting as the groom was not Tulsi, whom she had seen when the marriage was being fixed by the elders.
Rekha immediately informed her mother that the youth was not Tulsi.
When the villagers learned of the deceit, they stopped the ceremony and held the marriage party hostage through the night though talks were held and no consensus was reached.
By dawn police were informed and tried to settle the situation but the marriage party flopped and the bride returned without a groom.
