A 25-year-old woman identified as Bharti Yadav, has kidnapped a groom from a wedding alter in Uttar Pradesh, India.
According to NDTV, Bharti and the groom, Ashok Yadav had been in love with each other and even married secretly.
The report claimed that Ashok, had to break up with the 25-year-old to marry another woman, following pressure from family members.
Yadav, who was escorted by two young men who helped her in the act, arrived at the wedding ceremony in an SUV, carrying a revolver in her hand.
“This man loves me; he is betraying me by marrying someone else. I will not allow this to happen,” Yadav was quoted as saying while pointing the gun on the groom’s head.
Commenting on the incident, father of the groom, Ramhet Yadav, told the guests, “There was definitely something suspicious about my son.
“When I tried to visit him in the town where he worked, he would not invite me to his home. Instead, we would meet at a temple, feed me at a food stall near there and then send me home.”
