Etawah Bride Refuses To Marry Dark-complexioned Groom | Kanpur News

Kanpur: Midway through traditional wedding rituals, a woman in a village in Etawah district refused to marry a dark-complexioned groom, saying this is not the groom whose photo she saw.
As she claimed that the photo shown to her was of a fair complexioned man, the groom was shocked after being rejected by his would-be-bride amid the circumambulation ritual.

The bride and groom had taken two of the seven circumambulations when this incident happened. Later, he requested the elders from both sides to talk to her and convince her not to do so as it is a matter of honour in society.
But the girl remained adamant and said that she would not marry a dark complexioned man and even alleged that the groom has been changed.
“This is not the boy we saw in the photo. That was a pretty fair guy and this is a dark complexioned. These people have cheated in a way,” said the girl’s cousin while briefing the local police.
Police out-post in-charge, Kashif Haneef, however, said, “Almost all wedding rituals were completed. After taking two circumambulations, the bride refused to marry. The family members after being asked by the groom tried to explain the bride, but she did not agree. After this, talks were held between the two sides for a settlement for nearly six hours, but the matter did not materialise. The groom and marriage procession returned without the bride.”
The groom’s side has lodged a complaint at the local police station.
“It has been alleged in the complaint that the girl’s side had taken the jewellery, and they should be returned. We have registered an FIR, people from both sides are being questioned in this regard,” he
