Rasgulla shortage may be a trivial matter to some but for some invitees to a wedding party in Uttar Pradesh's Agra, it was not!
On Sunday night, November 19, a clash erupted during a wedding gathering in Agras' Shamshabad area, leaving individuals wounded due to a scarcity of rasgullas, reported Press Trust of India.

What happened?

  • The fight unfolded at the house of Brijbhan Kushwaha during a wedding function, after rumours about a shortage in the supply of rasgullas floated.
  • The exchange of punches and blows resulted in the injury of six people and their subsequent hospitalisation.
  • Anil Sharma, the Station House Officer (SHO) of Shamsabad police station, confirmed the incident to the PTI and said that those hospitalised are now out of danger.

  • SHO Sharma, briefing the PTI about the situation on Monday, November 20, said,
"On Sunday, there was a wedding function... at the function, a person passed a comment on the shortage of rasgullas."
  • This seemingly innocuous comment quickly turned into a physical fight, resulting in injuries to Bhagwan Devi, Yogesh, Manoj, Kailash, Dharmendra, and Pawan.
  • An official case has also been registered in connection with the incident, said SHO Sharma hinting at legal repercussions.
  • He also assured the well-being of those injured, indicating that they are now in stable condition.

Regrettably, this incident is not the first of its kind in Agra. Last October, a similar situation unfolded in Etmadpur, where a man lost his life in a brawl over the shortage of sweets during a wedding celebration.
