She claimed that the groom and she were lovers and had married secretly in a temple and that she was also bearing his child. Speaking to the Times of India, an eyewitness said that the girl made a sudden appearance during the garland ceremony and pointed the pistol at Devendra Awasthi, the groom.
When the groom argued that he did not even know her, she turned the pistol toward herself and said that she would shoot herself if he married. Following this, an altercation started between the bride and the groom's party and the girl refused to marry him.
