The bride's family shot down the allegation, saying that the real reason for the marriage being cancelled at the last minute was dowry demand by the bridegroom's side.

Police said the bride's father, Uroj Mehandi, had lodged a case against the bridegroom's family, accusing them of demanding Rs 65 lakh in dowry.

Superintendent of police, Amroha, Vipin Tada told Hindustan Times, "The bridegroom's side have claimed that they snapped the marriage, which was to take place on September 5, as the bride had a habit of using WhatsApp excessively, and was sending messages to her in-laws even before the wedding."
