The incident took place in the Dariyagarh village under the Bhot Police Station.

According to the condition put by the groom's family they had asked the bride's family to either serve their guests with beef preparations or be prepared for cancellation of the marriage.

Besides asking for a non-negotiable demand of beef dishes, the groom's side had also demanded a dowry.

However, the bride's family agreed to none. "They demanded beef to be served at the wedding and a car. When we denied for both, they called off the wedding. The government has banned beef. How can we serve it?" asked the bride's mother.
