Banda (Uttar Pradesh) [India], Feb 20 (ANI): The father of a bride has allegedly attempted suicide by hanging himself after the groom cancelled the marriage over dowry.
On the day of the wedding, the groom's family demanded an additional Rs. 5 lakh as dowry. The bride's family had already given Rs. 1 lakh in cash and other belongings as dowry to the groom on the day of the engagement.
The groom works in a railway department in Madhya Pardesh.
