Muzaffarnagar: A wedding was called off in Kulhedi village in Muzaffarnagar by the groom's family after they found out that meat was not served in the function, police said on Thursday.

The groom Rizvan was scheduled to marry Nagma on Wednesday but his family objected over not serving non-vegetarian food following which they cancelled the wedding, they said.

 

Later, a community panchayat was called to resolve the dispute and Rizwan's family agreed to go ahead with the ceremony but Nagma refused to marry at the last moment and instead tied the knot with another man on Thursday, police said.

The man had himself proposed to marry her and the two were allowed to do so by the panchayat also.
