In a shocking incident, a woman in Bihar’s Buxar district has refused to marry a dark-skin groom, saying he was not ‘smart’ enough for her. The groom, Anjani Chouhan, was stunned after his would-be-bride denied to marry him, citing his dark complexion at mandap in Ramrekha Ghat in Buxar.

“After Anjani was informed that she had refused to marry him, he requested elders from his family and the bride’s side to talk to her and persuade her not to do so as it is matter of honour and dignity in society. But the girl made it clear that she would not marry a dark complexioned man,” said a district police official, reported India.com.

As per the officials, the bride was joyful during the wedding rituals, but suddenly told her close family members and friends that she will not marry Anjani due to his dark complexion. Later, the groom’s family members approached the police.

“We told them that police cannot do anything if the girl has refused to marry,” said an official. The upset groom finally returned home without marrying the girl.

Notably, this is second such incident in Bihar within just two weeks. In the last week of April, a woman refused to marry a dark complexioned groom in Samastipur district.
