All of a sudden, thousands of bees from a nearby tree invaded the marriage venue and attacked those present at the temple.Fortunately, both the bride and the groom escaped unhurt in the bee attack.Locals said while the marriage ceremony was underway, a youth threw a stone at beehives on the tree located inside the temple premises resulting in the attack.
