Fire arms display at Ravindra Jadeja's wedding!

As the marriage procession was moving, apparently one of Jadeja's relatives, who was within a few feet of the horse-mounted cricketer, was seen firing in the air from his revolver.

Ravindra Jadeja today tied the nuptial knot with Riva Solanki here in a ceremony where a reveller opened celebratory firing in the air, prompting the police to launch an inquiry.

The 27-year-old left-handed batsman wore a 'Sherwani' and 'Kathiawadi saafa.' He rode a horse, with a sword dangling by his side, and looked totally at ease during the marriage procession.

The 25-year-old Riva, a mechanical engineer and daughter of a local contractor, looked resplendent in a red and golden bridal lehenga with ethnic Gujarati embroidery. She teamed up her wedding attire with traditional gold jewellery having minarki detailing. Riva later changed into a peach and golden dress.





As the marriage procession was moving, apparently one of Jadeja's relatives, who was within a few feet of the horse-mounted cricketer, was seen firing in the air from his revolver.

No one was affected, but cops arriving at the scene said it's illegal to use even licensed firearms except in cases of self-defence.

“We have initiated an inquiry to find if the revolver used was licensed or not. We will decide on taking action after investigation,” said Rajkot (Rural) Superintendent of Police Antrip Sood.

The marriage was conducted in traditional 'Kshatriya' style, with Jadeja's relatives and friends attending it. His team-mates from the Indian Premier League (IPL) franchise Gujarat Lions could not make it on time for the rituals in view of the ongoing matches.





However, the team members, including Dwayne Bravo and skipper Suresh Raina, arrived here for the reception.

Players and office bearers from the Saurashtra Cricket Association also attended the marriage.

Jadeja, known for his flamboyance, was also seen displaying his dancing skills with the sword at the 'sangeet sandhya', a musical evening organised yesterday. A video of the event went viral on the social media.
