Bus driver from India calls off wedding after bride’s family allegedly gave old furniture as part of dowry  

KUALA LUMPUR, Feb 21 — A man from Hyderabad, India called off his wedding after alleging that he received “old” furniture in a dowry.

The groom, identified as Mohammad Zakeer, 25, who works as a bus driver, did not turn up for the wedding scheduled on Sunday with 22-year-old Heena Fatima.

Later, the bride’s father filed a complaint with the police and a case was registered, the Hindustan Times reported.

He also alleged that the groom’s father misbehaved with him when he had gone to their house to question them.

“They said the items which they had asked for were not given and the furniture was also old,” said the bride’s father.

“I had arranged for the feast for the wedding and invited all relatives and guests. But the groom did not come for his wedding.”

The police said the groom’s family had expected furniture along with other items in the dowry but when they found out that old furniture was allegedly given by the bride’s family, they called off the wedding.

A case under relevant sections of the Indian Penal Code and Dowry Prohibition Act was registered and further investigations were on, the police added.

Reports said with all preparations already in place, the bride’s father waited for a long time but later received information that the groom’s family had called off the wedding.

He then went to their house and learned that the groom’s family was upset over old furniture given to them and demanded more dowry.
