Wedding ends in brawl over dowry demand

DOMBIVLI: A computer engineer employed with an MNC in Bandra-Kurla Complex was arrested for allegedly demanding dowry on his wedding day. His parents were also arrested.

Praveen Bane (24) was supposed to tie the knot with Amruta Salunkhe (21) at Gyaneshwar Mangal Karyalay hall in Dombivli (W) on Sunday morning. Bane allegedly demanded Rs 2 lakh as dowry, which the bride's family refused to pay. This resulted in a heated argument which soon escalated into fisticuffs between the two sides. "We were shocked when Praveen demanded Rs 2 lakh as dowry. I do not want my daughter to marry a greedy person," said Amruta's father Vijay.

Praveen and Amruta, both of whom used to work in the same company, fell in love and decided to get married. Initially, Praveen's family opposed the alliance, but later agreed, said the police.

Praveen's family and relatives have denied demanding the dowry. Said a relative, "We reached the venue late and objected to one of the rituals. This angered members of the girl's family who beat up four of our relatives, including the groom. Praveen had to be administered four stitches on his head. But police did not register a case against Amruta's family."

Senior inspector (Vishnu Nagar police) Rajendra Kulkarni said, "On the basis of the complaint lodged by the girl's family, we have booked Praveen and his parents, Prakash and Chaya, under relevant sections of the Dowry Prohibition Act."
