VELLORE/CHENNAI : Two weddings that were fixed for Friday, an auspicious day, could not be solemnised - one in Chennai and the other at a village near Vellore - as the grooms went missing at the eleventh hour, leaving the brides and their families wringing their hands in despair.

While the Chennai girl immediately walked to the Police Commissioner’s office in bridal finery to file a complaint, the other girl, hailing from Ambur, refused to tie the knot with the man even after he returned later in the day.

In Chennai, police have launched a search for Vijayakumar, a 30-year-old car driver from Perambur, after the 22-year-old girl lodged a complaint with the Vadapalani womans police that he failed to turn up for the wedding scheduled to be held between 6 and 7.30 am in Vadapalani.

When she went to the Commissioners’ office, she could not file the complaint as there as the grievance cell was not open.  

In the other case, the marriage was to be held Katpadi between 7.30 and 9 am at a marriage hall, from where the groom, Sirvan Kumar of from AP, sneaked out on the pretext of attending nature’s call.

Two hours before the wedding, the groom told his father that he was mentally depressed.

The families called of the wedding as the groom went missing. Later when his father spoke to him over phone, Sirvanan Kumar, who had taken a bus to Tirupati, returned past 3 pm.

But the 24 year-old bride, refused to marry him.
