The bride's family then locked the four persons inside, a police spokesperson said. However, they were released later. Members of the panchayat asked the groom's family to transfer either 4 bighas of land or Rs 10 lakh to the bride or else she would not be allowed to leave for Qureshi's house, the spokesperson said.

Till Sunday night, Qureshi had not made the cash deposit. Police incharge Govind Singh said the two sides are sorting out the matter through talks.
