A bride in Maharashtra married another man after her groom failed to reach the wedding venue on time. According to an India Today report, the father of the bride arranged for her to be married to a relative, reportedly because he was annoyed at the groom for getting drunk and not reaching the mandap at the appointed time.

The wedding was scheduled to take place in Malkapur Pangra village of Maharashtra’s Buldhana district on April 22. The muhurat or the auspicious time for starting the ceremony was 4 pm.

However, when 4 pm came, the groom was nowhere to be seen. The bride, Priyanka, and her family were kept waiting at the mandap, reportedly because the groom’s side was busy dancing and drinking. When they finally reached the venue four hours late, the bride’s family refused to proceed with the wedding. A scuffle also broke out between the bride’s and the groom’s side, according to Dainik Bhaskar.

"The groom and his friends were drunk and came to the mandap at 8 pm instead of 4 pm and started fighting. We got my daughter married to one of our relatives,” said the bride’s mother.
