A groom went missing from a wayside restaurant where the marriage procession stopped on its way back from the wedding in Bareilly, Uttar Pradesh. Interestingly, the groom had married the girl of his choice.
Hours later, he was found hanging from a tree, about one kilometre away.
According to reports, the wedding had taken place on Monday.
The incident took place on Tuesday when the ‘baraat’ was returning.
The police said that the groom 22-year-old Dushyant Giri may have ended his life. Though, the bride suspects foul play. Asha, the bride, said Dushyant had no reason to commit suicide.
After his brother and others failed to trace the groom, they informed police and sent the bride back to her parent’s house in Bareilly.
Station house officer (SHO) of Pakbada police station inspector Surendra Pal Singh said: “When we were sending the body for an autopsy, Giri’s family members told us that they did not want any further action, including the post-mortem. But, following the standard procedure, we sent the body to a mortuary for an autopsy.”
Moradabad Superintendent of Police (city) Amit Kumar Anand said the post-mortem report confirmed it to be the death by hanging.
Dushyant’s brother Shivyant said: “We halted at a roadside eatery, where Dushyant ordered tea, but he disappeared all of sudden. We tried to search him out, but in vain. Then we informed police and left for home. Later, police informed us over the phone that they found Dushyant’s body hanging from a tree.”
Dushyant worked as a salesman at a petrol pump in Meerut. Dushyant went against wishes of many people to marry Asha.
Both families acceded to Dushyant’s demand and the couple got married.
