The incident took place late on Tuesday night at Ajnar village of the district when Neha (name changed), daughter of Shripat Ahirwar refused to marry her drunk groom who had to return home humiliated and shattered.

Neha's marriage was to be solemnised with Arvind, a native of Ragauli village under the limits of Harpalpur police station in Madhya Pradesh, on Tuesday.

Neha, in her early 20s, was decked up in traditional red bridal attire and ready for 'jaimaal' ceremony, but on seeing Arvind drunk and quarelling with her siblings and other guests over DJ music, she refused to marry him and walked away from the venue.

"At the 'mandap', the priest who was getting disturbed while chanting mantras, asked the siblings of the girl to stop playing DJ music. When they stopped the DJ, Arvind and his relatives who were drunk started quarelling with them and created a scene. Neha, who was witness to the entire drama, called off the wedding," informed SHO Rajiv Yadav. Villagers also supported Neha and asked her parents not to force her into marrying a person against her wishes. Sources said that the groom was so drunk that he along with other members of the 'baraat' created ruckus at the wedding venue.

The girl's father and siblings too took a courageous stand and asked the 'baraat' to return. "She found full backing from her parents," family sources said. "She refused to marry the man who was drunk. I did not force her to marry against her wishes," said Shripat Ahirwar, Neha's father. "The marriage party was looking the party of drunken people. Neha could not tolerate that the boy who is going to be her better half should come in an inebriated state. She could not digest that after taking liquor the groom should utter abusive words to her relatives," said a relative of the girl.

The groom's side later approached the police but was advised not to pursue the case. "What can police do, if a girl refuses to marry a drunk man," said SHO Yadav.
