In a shocking incident reported from Rajasthan, angry relatives of a man allegedly cut off the bride’s father’s nose after the engagement was called off. The incident was reported from Jhafanli village under the Sheo police station jurisdiction, Barmer. According to reports the victim was identified as Kamal Singh Bhati and the incident occurred earlier on Wednesday.

According to the victim’s account, his daughter’s engagement was fixed to a resident in Suwala village. However, over the concerns of safety, he decided to call off the engagement. The girl’s relatives had alleged that their family member was allegedly married to the same extended family, and had been murdered due to dowry.

Earlier on Wednesday, an argument broke out between the two sides as the girl’s father called off the wedding. This was when the boy’s relatives chopped off Kamal Singh’s nose and fled the spot. The accused reportedly took the nose along them.

According to a Hindustan Times report, the family of the boy considered the rejection an insult. They tried to convince the girl’s father and even resorted to threats. On Wednesday, when Kamal Singh was going to his farm, the relatives ambushed him and cut off his nose.

Earlier in April, three sisters, who were married off in one family, died of suicide by jumping in a well with their children.
