Tej Pratap tied nuptial knot with Aishwarya Rai, daughter of RJD MLA and former minister Chandrika Rai in Patna.

Chaos broke out at the wedding of RJD supremo Lalu Prasad Yadav's son Tej Pratap Yadav when an unruly crowd breached the cordon separating the marquee meant for VIPs and the media and starting looting food items.

Shortly after the bride and groom exchanged garlands, a horde of people, believed to be RJD supporters broke the cordon and started looting food items and crockery.

The entire area was strewn with broken crockery and upturned tables and chairs. A number of RJD party leaders made a vain attempt to chase away intruders by wielding sticks.

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.

Earlier on Saturday, Tej Pratap tied nuptial knot with Aishwarya Rai, daughter of RJD MLA and former minister Chandrika Rai at a grand ceremony in Patna. Many political stalwarts including Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, Union Minister Ram Vilas Paswan, veteran Janata Dal leader Sharad Yadav and Bihar Governor Satya Pal Mallik attended the wedding.

Lalu Prasad Yadav, who is facing a 14-year jail term, was on Friday granted parole for three-days to attend his son's wedding ceremony. The court later granted an additional six weeks provisional bail for medical treatment.
