The ladies sangeet took place on Sunday and the wedding was slated for Monday. Surprisingly, Ishita told her family that she didnt want to marry as Amit was pressing her for fulfilling dowry demand. He demanded 10 lakh rupees cash and a car as dowry, family sources said. Ishita claimed that she had given 3 lakh rupees already but Amit kept pressurizing her.
Ishita told the media that she was so stressed that at a point of time she even thought of committing suicide as her family’s reputation would be at stake.
