KASUR: Rivals allegedly kidnapped a bride and shot at and injured the bridegroom’s father and other relatives when a marriage procession was on its way back to the groom’s house in Ghalan Hithar village in Allahabad police precincts on Friday.
The wedding procession of Abdul Mannan was on its way from Gawatta village to Ghalan Hithar when Asghar Ali and his accomplices opened indiscriminate fire, creating panic among the participants of the procession.
The assailants later kidnapped bride Farzana Kausar and took her to an undisclosed location. The bridegroom’s father Abdul Jabbar and others sustained bullet injuries.
Asghar allegedly wanted Farzana’s hand for his son, but Jabbar refused. This refusal led to a rivalry, the apparent motive behind the FridayÂ’s incident. The police registered a case and started investigations.
