Bathinda, August 10
A wedding celebration full of dance and music took an ugly turn as guests resorted to fistcuffs for not getting non-veg food at the Dhillon marriage palace located on Bibiwala road here today.
In the melee, guests from the bride and groom’s side threw stones, liquor bottles and whatever came into their hands at each other. This brawl continued for around two hours.
Five guests from the groom side and seven from the bride are seriously injured and have been admitted to the Civil Hospital.
It was not the end of the fight as guests from both sides created chaos at the hospital while patients were getting treatment.
The bride refused to tie the wedlock and preferred to be “single rather than living in an uncivilised family whoes members took drugs”.
Police officials from the Civil Lines police station reached the spot.
As per information, Sukhdev Singh, a resident of Guru Nanak Nagar, had arranged for his daughter’s wedding with Gurbaj Singh, a resident of Mallawala village in Firozepur district at Dhillon Palace.
Karnail Singh, a relative of the bride, said, “We were told that 40 members from the groom’s side would come but around 170 guests turned up. We were busy serving them when suddenly, 10-12 persons from the groom’s side, irked over not being served non-veg food, went inside the kitchen of the palace and attack our relatives.”
Groom’s relative Parkash Singh said, “We were serving our own liquor to our guests when relatives of the bride demanded liquor, which led to the incident. They attacked our relatives with weapons.”
Civil Lines police station SHO Karamjit Singh said they were investigating the matter.
