Why does one attend a wedding? To eat. Oh . . . and to bless the couple, of course. But little did we imagine that the families involved would call the wedding off because of the food.

Shortage of ice cream at a marriage function led to a frenzied row between the families of the bride and the groom in Mathura. Three police personnel were injured as the families attacked each other with brickbats. The wedding was finally called off.

“The incident took place last evening in Mahesh Nagar colony in Mathura, when after the ‘Jaimaala ceremony’ the host and few members from the groom side entered into heated argument over the shortage of ice cream,” said the police according to NDTV.

“It finally led to a clash between the two families,” said superintendent of police (rural) Arun Kumar Singh. He added that the groom’s family then called the police and, based on their complaint, seven persons from the bride’s side were arrested.

“Angry over police action, members from the bride’s side, including women, started pelting stone on police and also blocked the road,” Singh said.

It is reported that one constable and two sub-inspectors were injured in the row.

“Also, police had to use force to clear blockade on Raya-Sadabad road,” Singh added. Both sides filed FIRs.
