Groom 'cancels wedding after bride's family refuse to give him car'

A township court in Fatehabad, India has fined a man after he cancelled an engagement with just days to go before the wedding.

Police said Mansi, a resident of Ratia township in Fatehabad district, was engaged to Sanjeev Kumar, a resident of a village in Punjab's Mansa district last January. The families had fixed April 22 as the wedding date.

The woman's uncle, Naresh Sharma, told TOI on Tuesday that after they had made all the arrangements for the wedding and distributed the invitation cards, the man's family sought a car and other items in dowry.

When the woman's family refused to meet these demands, the man's family cancelled the engagement.



However, the man's family members denied these allegations. They claimed the man and the woman had decided to call off the engagement during the past year.

Fatehabad SP Sangeeta Rani said the complaint was filed by the woman and the matter was referred to the crime against women cell.

She admitted the two parties later sorted out the issue with the court's help.

"We don't interfere in panchayat's decisions, but we generally see the interest and consent of the victim is protected," she said. "We're also checking whether the girl was satisfied with the decision or not."
