In Uttar Pradesh, a groom who allegedly did not know how to drive, ran over his aunt with a car gifted to him in dowry during a wedding function. The incident was reported from Akbarpur village in Uttar Pradesh’s Etawah district and occurred earlier on Tuesday night this week. The accused groom in the matter has been identified as 24-year-old Arun Kumar, a Provincial Arms Constabulary (PAC) jawan.

As per the details, Arun, a PAC Jawan, was given the keys of his new car, a Tata Nexon, as a “gift” from the bride’s family. Despite not knowing how to drive, the overzealous groom decided to take the car for a spin. The inexperienced driver got in the car after the ‘tilak ceremony’, and turned the car’s engine on.

His excitement soon turned into the horror for the wedding attendees as instead of applying brakes, he put his foot on the accelerator, running over his aunt who was standing nearby. The 35-year-old aunt of the groom, identified as Sarla Devi, died in the aftermath of the shocking incident.

Further, four other persons, including a 10-year-old girl, also sustained injuries, with the latter being rushed to the local hospital for immediate treatment. The accused was taken into custody, and would be charged with rash driving, and negligent driving resulting in a culpable homicide.
