Patna: Chaos prevailed at the wedding of Tej Pratap Yadav, the elder son of RJD chief Lalu Prasad, as an unruly crowd breached the cordon separating the pandal meant for VIPs and the media and started looting food.
- Tej Pratap Yadav married Aishwarya Roy, daughter of an RJD legislator
- A horde of people broke the cordon and started looting food
- Party leaders, with sticks, made a vain attempt to chase intruders away
Mr Yadav married Aishwarya Roy, who is the daughter of RJD legislator Chandrika Roy.
Preparations were made for thousands of people gathered for the wedding.
Shortly after Tej Pratap and Aishwarya Roy exchanged garlands, a large number of people, believed to be RJD supporters, broke the cordon and started looting food.
Several media persons, including cameramen, complained of having been manhandled and their equipment damaged.
Caterers said the unruly crowd looted some of their utensils and other items.
Organisers had earlier said that arrangement of food had been made for around 7,000 people, but it appeared that no adequate attention had been paid towards regulating such a huge number of people.
