 In a bizarre incident, a joyful and boisterous wedding gathering turned into mourning, with the sudden death of the bride, after marriage. The incident occurred at Eguvapalli village of Tadipatri mandal on Sunday.

The bride Radha(18) collapsed when she was kicking a tumbler full of rice, a convention being followed after the marriage (while the newly wed is taken to the groom’s residence), even as the relatives, friends and invitees were puzzled she breathed her last.

According to information reaching here, the marriage of Ramanjineya Reddy(20) of Yeguvapalli and Radha of Nittur in Yadiki mandal, both belonging to agriculture families, which was fixed by their elders, was held at the bridegroom’s house.

The wedding celebrations started on a bright note on Saturday morning and continued till night. The bridegroom tied the nuptial knot at 9 am and the wedding ceremony was completed as the newly weds gazed at the sky for the star Arundhati.

Following the tradition, Radha entered into the room, first putting her left leg and later kicked off the decorated grain vessel kept there and collapsed.

She died before she was taken to the hospital, triggering shock, swiftly followed by grief and wailing of the kith and kin and friends, turning a joyful house into a grief-stricken home. Sources said that Radha was in love with somebody else and had eloped with him a month back. The bride seems to have consumed some poisonous substance before kicking the rice tumbler.
