A woman who was jilted by the lover has done the unthinkable by abducting her former boyfriend at gunpoint on his wedding day.
Woman believed to be Ashok Yadav's bride
Hundreds of guests watched in horror when a girl accompanied by a group of armed men arrived at a marriage pandal and abducted the groom before his wedding, according to TimesOfIndia.
The groom identified as Ashok Yadav, a native of Mohanpurwa in Banda district, was getting married to a girl hailing from Maudaha town of Hamirpur district on Monday night (May 15), when he was allegedly abducted on gun-point by his ex-beloved and her armed aides hailing from Banda district. The groom could not be recovered till late Tuesday night.
The bride and groom had just gone through the `tika' rituals when Ashok's ex girlfriend, accompanied by half-a-dozen armed men arrived at the scene. "The armed men took Ashok at gunpoint and threatened him to accompany them. After bundling him on the rear seat of a car, they sped away," a police official said.
"We were witnessing `tika' rituals when six men armed with pistols asked Ashok to get down from the stage. We thought they are criminals demanding money but they didn't ask anything and took Ashok with them," an eyewitness said.
Ashok, who works as a compounder, lives in Mohanpurwa locality of Banda. He had an affair with a local girl, but he broke up with her early last year.
Ashoks family then engaged him with a girl hailing from Maudaha town of Hamirpur district. When Ashoks ex-lover heard of the wedding, she tried to dissuade him and his parents several times, police sources said. The ex-lover, went to Ashok's home and even threatened the family that she will commit suicide if they married him to another girl.
"After being alerted by dial 100 police, we have launched a manhunt and trying to get in touch with groom's family members, we have not receive a complaint," additional superintendent of police Hamirpur BK Mishra said.
