Bride calls off wedding after uncle injured in celebratory firing

(Web Desk) - A 22-year-old bride called off the wedding after her uncle was allegedly injured in celebratory firing by the groom s guests.

Iram cancelled the wedding with Shahzad just hours before it was to be solemnised on Wednesday night, after the accident took place.

“How can I marry him? If his family is behaving this way in front of my whole family, how will they behave when I will be alone with them at their place?” Iram was quoted as saying by local media outlets.

Soon after the girl announced her decision, her family members broke the groom s car, thrashed his relatives and held them hostage for some time.

The police reached the spot and brought the situation under control.

An FIR was filed and the woman s uncle has been admitted to a hospital where his condition is said to be stable.
