UP: Plates' shortage in wedding leads to fight, one killed
Things took an ugly turn at a wedding in Uttar Pradesh's Vikrampur area when event organizers ran out of plates for the guests. The heated argument between the organizers and guests turned physical in no time. Unfortunately, it led to the death of one and left four injured. A 20-year-old man identified as Vishal succumbed to injuries on his way to the hospital.
The guests arrived on Saturday and were served with snacks and other eatables. Later they gathered for the full course meal and were informed the organizers ran out of plates. This led to an argument and soon blows were exchanged, that killed Vishal and injured four. The station officer Nanhu Yadav of Maniyar said, "We are investigating the incident."
This is not the first time a wedding ceremony was mired with violence in Uttar Pradesh. In March this year, a wedding turned violent in Uttar Pradesh's Muzaffarnagar over songs played by DJ. The warring parties pelted stones and exchanged blows at the ceremony in Gandhadi village. The clash had injured three and was only contained after police reached the spot.
While violence has become normal, a marriage was called off in UP over rosogullas last year. The marriage of Shiv Kumar from Unnao to a woman from nearby village turned ugly after groom's cousin demanded one more rosogulla from bride's close relative. Soon, arguments followed, food was thrown and the wedding got cancelled. UP and weddings don't make a good combination it seems.
