Bride calls off wedding on D-Day sparking mass fight between families

Three of the bride's relatives were arrested for their violent behaviour.

The Indian bride sparked the fight after publicly deciding to call off the ceremony.

Police in the eastern state of Bihar revealed that the bride's decision came after the groom began "behaving in a strange manner" when lightning struck a nearby field during some of the wedding vows.

Lightning

"After the lightning, the groom behaved as [if] he was afraid of it", a spokesman explained, according to The Telegraph.

The bride's decision caused outrage with the groom's family, who complained it was too late to back out as some of the wedding rituals had already been performed by a priest.

However, when they shared their frustration, the bride's relatives are said to have attacked them.

Sidheshwar Azad, the duty officer in-charge at the police station said that three of the bride's relatives were later arrested and held in custody for their violent behaviour.

Drunk

Indian weddings are considered large social events, but are often halted for a range of bizarre reasons.

One bride is said to have been so shocked by her drunk husband's dance moves that she left the wedding in tears.

Another saw a punch-up break out during the ceremony, after a bride opted to marry a guest instead of the groom, when her husband-to-be was taken ill.
