As the rituals began 19-year-old bride Vinita, suddenly complained of uneasiness and collapsed.

Her family members rushed her to a medical facility that denied her admission until she tested negative for Corona.

Her father, Kishora Batham, rushed her to Kanpur but by then her condition had deteriorated and Vinita passed away.

The family informed the police on emergency number 112 and the body has now been sent for post-mortem.

“We will take action, if needed, after the post-mortem report comes,” said the Kannauj police spokesman.

While the family performed the cremation of Vinita on Saturday evening, the baraat returned without the bride.
