his wedding with another woman claiming they were not divorced.
According to DailyMail, the woman, identified as Rakhi, said the man
could not marry the woman 18 years his junior because they were still
legally married after tying the knot 14 years ago.
As she argued with him, the groom said he did not know her, which
prompted the angry woman and her family to start assaulting him.
He said that he had divorced his first wife and that he had the papers
to prove it, but as he tried to run away, the relatives chased him and
The altercation got so bad the restaurant owner decided to evacuate the
building and police were eventually called who took both parties to the
Sarabha Nagar station in Ludhiana.
Rakhi’s brother Pawan Kumar said his sister had been married to the groom for 14 years and they had a teenage son together.
Their relationship had become strained and Rakhi moved in with her parents.
Kumar also accused Sonu of being unemployed and physically abusing his sister over money.
He told the Hindustan Times:
‘We took Rakhi back to our home and set a condition before Sonu that they will send her back only after he will start earning.
‘Sonu agreed to this and used to visit Rakhi often.
‘We never expected that he will solemnise a second marriage.
‘We came to know about his marriage two days ago, when someone showed us the wedding invitation.’
A report has been filed and the court will decide if further action
needs to be taken after Sonu said he had been married for seven years
before divorcing her. He claims to have the documents to prove it.
Adding to the confusion of the day is the fact the restaurant had been
booked for a birthday party, while a photographer at the event told
police he was there to shoot a wedding.
