The incident took place in Kalvehadi village. It is alleged that about 15 days before the marriage, the boy's side demanded a bullet bike and a Creta car in dowry from the girl's side. At the same time, he talked about breaking the marriage if the demand is not met. Based on the complaint, the police have registered a case against seven persons, including the culprit, his mother and three brothers.

She fixed the relationship of her daughter with Shailendra, a resident of village Mahalana in Sonipat district, who is a clerk in the electricity corporation.
When the relationship was fixed on September 3 last year, the groom's side was told to marry the girl in only 3 clothes without a dowry. With the approval of both parties, the date of marriage of February 11, 2022, was fixed. Thereafter, the preparations for the marriage ceremony began.
