'No mutton, no marriage': Odisha man calls off wedding

·1-min read

In a bizarre incident in Odisha, a man walked out on his bride on the day of his wedding because her family could not serve mutton for the feast. 

The 27-year-old groom, Ramakant Patra, later married another girl the same day.

The groom, along with his family and relatives, reached Bandhagaon village in Sukinda block on Wednesday afternoon. After reaching the venue, they were welcomed by the bride’s family and were taken to the dining hall for lunch.

As the food was being served, a few people from the groom's side started demanding mutton curry vociferously and even got into a tiff with the bride's family members.

The situation soon spiralled out of control and turned ugly.

When the groom learnt that mutton had not been cooked for lunch, he called off the wedding despite persistent pleas from the bride's family.

He then married another woman the same night before returning to his hometown Keonjhar. 

No complaint in this regard has been lodged with the police so far.
