In November, as millions of Indians were grappling with a cashflow crisis, a lavish wedding in the southern city of Bangalore sparked outrage.

Gali Janardhana Reddy is the man behind the extravagant wedding. He is a businessman, a former minister and the father of the bride.

Mr Reddy is alleged to have converted 1bn rupees of black (illegal) money to pay for the wedding.

Some have petitioned the federal police to arrest the former state official over corruption allegation.
