Jaipur, Nov 26 (IANS) His wedding ended even before it began. This bridegroom from Dausa district of Rajasthan began celebrating his marriage a little too early and arrived tipsy at the venue of the nuptials, where his bride refused to marry him, police said Monday.

The bridegroom and his father were drunk, and got into a scuffle with guests from the bride's family. According to the police, the wedding was to take place Sunday night at Sainthal town, some 150 km from Jaipur.

A police officer told IANS: "The groom, Vivek Panchal, had reached Sainthal Sunday evening from Jaipur's Rajasthan Police Academy area to wed Geeta Panchal, daughter of Munnalal Panchal."

As preparations for the marriage rituals began, the family members of the bride saw that something was amiss.

"The bridegroom and his father behaved strangely, quarrelling with the music band and the DJ, and claiming that they had not got enough dowry," a police officer said.

The offensive remarks led to a fist−fight, the officer said.

Irked by the unruly scenes, the bride refused to get married, the police officer said.

"We received a complaint about a law and order situation, and rushed to the spot. The bridegroom and his family had already left by then," the police officer said.
