Bridegroom’s father Chaman Lal Viswas somehow managed to contact his brother Ramanand Viswas who further contacted the police and gave a written complaint against them.
“After receiving the complaint, we raided the place and rescued the victims. We have also registered an FIR against 15 persons and efforts are on to nab them. The situation turned ugly over the trivial issue of crackers,” police said.
