Banda: A jilted woman, brandishing a gun, abducted a groom from a wedding venue just before the saat pheras, but was arrested after the police launched a hunt for her.

The 25-year-old woman arrived with two young men in an SUV to Ashok Yadav's wedding in a Hamirpur village on Tuesday and carried away the groom with them before the shocked guests could react.

"This man loves me, he is betraying me by marrying someone else. I will not allow this to happen," she had said.

A hunt by the police paid dividends as the woman and two of her friends were arrested from a locality in Banda.

One of the friends had accompanied her to the wedding venue, while the role of the third person — a woman — was still to be ascertained.

On her information, the groom was rescued, police said, adding the accused were being questioned.

According to villagers, the woman and Yadav were in a relationship but he succumbed to family pressure and agreed to marry another woman of their choice.

The police said the woman was still insisting that she would not allow him to marry any other woman.
