Indian weddings are full of drama and several stories of celebrations gone wrong have gone viral on social media. The latest to join this dubious hall of fame is a video of a groom running away from his wedding in Hyderabad.
The man, named Syed Nazeer aka Khaleel, was trying to remarry without informing or taking the permission of his first wife Dr Sana Samreen.
During the wedding reception, a furious Dr. Sana entered the venue with policemen in tow. The groom panicked as soon as he saw his first wife and ran away from the back door.
“My sister married Nazeer soon after he came back from New Zealand in 2019. During the Covid-19 lockdown, he was stuck here and we took care of his expenses. However, he demanded Rs. 1.5 million which we could not pay. He then began staying away from my sister,” Sana’s brother told Deccan Chronicle.
Dr Samreen also told media that she has given away almost all her savings to her husband but he still chose to remarry which angered her.
“I am a doctor. During the second wave of COVID-19, I served Syed’s uncle who was COVID positive and gave most of my savings to him during the lockdown,” said Sana.
Hopefully, Nazeer will now think twice before trying to get married again.
