The incident occurred at Noapara in North 24-Parganas on Thursday morning. Her marriage was held on December 4 and she had her reception on Wednesday. Police have already arrested the victim's husband and elder brother-in-law in this connection so far.
Police said that the victim, Bebi Dhali, a resident of Jagaddal in the same district, got married to Subhankar Deb Roy of Noapara on December 4.

When the victim's husband went to the hospital, her family members beat him up. Police rescued the husband from the irate mob. The family members have lodged a complaint at the local police station in this connection.
The victim's husband claimed that the wife of his elder brother had created a ruckus over a broken vase during the reception. The family members of Bebi found this to be insulting for them, following which they left the reception ceremony.
