A 65-year-old man named Mahendra Rahila, who is a resident of New Delhi, allegedly died on Wednesday due to high decibel music on the night of his son Ankit’s wedding in Malkangiri town of Odisha. Rahila’s son was getting married to a local girl there. However, after the death of his father, the groom lost his temper and assaulted the bride and her mother after a spat.

After his father’s death, the groom insisted on not cremating the father’s body and taking the bride along with him to Delhi, to marry later. But when she and her family members refused, he ended up thrashing the bride and her mother.

Ankit works in New Delhi and had befriended the bride, whose name has not been mentioned, on Facebook. The bride lives in the Lathiaguda locality. The two fell in love and proposed marriage to their family members, who immediately agreed to it. The wedding was supposed to take place on April 20.

The New Indian Express reported that some 12 family members, including the groom and his father, had arrived in the town on Wednesday morning for the wedding. A procession for the same began from a private hotel in the evening and was supposed to reach the bride’s place.

However, midway Mahendra collapsed. The Orrisa Post reported that he had complained of feeling sick because of the loud music. After he collapsed, Mahendra was rushed to a local hospital, where he was declared dead. Since it was an unnatural death, the body was seized by the police and was handed over to the family only after a post-mortem.

Chairperson of Malkangiri municipality Manoj Kumar Barik said that the father allegedly had a pacemaker implanted in his heart and suffered a cardiac arrest that could have been triggered by the music. Barik told the media that the deceased man’s body was sent to Swargadwar in Puri for cremation and Ankit’s marriage was postponed.

The Orrisa Post reported that Ankit and his family have been detained by the police, who are now investigating the matter.
