In a bizarre turn-of-events reported from Bihar, a groom got so drunk, he ended up forgetting to attend his own wedding! Moreover, the matters truly escalated where the bride’s family ended up the groom’s side hostage. The entire ordeal took place in Sultanganj village in Bhagalpur. It was only when the cops intervened that the matter was resolved with no one being harmed (other than the marriage being called off, obviously!).

According to reports, Santosh Kumar Mandal, forgot to show up for his own wedding. The culprit? Heavy drinking with his friends on the day of the wedding, causing him to completely forget his responsibilities. As a result, his bride-to-be, Neha of Mirzapur village, was left waiting with her family and friends for the wedding procession, which never arrived.

The next day, when the groom regained consciousness, he realized the grave mistake he had made and rushed over to the bride’s home with the procession. Unfortunately for him, Neha refused to marry him, citing his reckless behavior and lack of responsibility.

While the bride simply decided to call off the wedding, her family was in no mood to let the groom’s transgressions slide. They held the groom and his family hostage, demanding a full refund of all expenses incurred for the wedding arrangements.

The Facts of the Matter
