Drama unfolded at an Indian wedding on Wednesday, April 26 when a bride divorced her new husband after only three hours of marriage.

18-year-old Rubana Parveen married 26-year-old Muntaj Ansari on Wednesday morning in eastern India's Chandwa village.

However, an argument soon ensued after Ansari expressed dissatisfaction with the motorbike Parveen's father had bought him as dowry and demanded a more expensive one.

Parveen and her father, Bashir-ud-din, 58, branded Ansari greedy but he didn't back down from his demands.

An onlooker told reporters: "Everyone kept telling the groom to calm down and tried convincing him to accept what he was given. But he kept threatening to go home without his new bride. The groom and bride’s father were arguing a lot. It was a crazy scene."
