You are legally not married yet. You can go ahead and get married to any other girl if you wish.

Talk to that girl and her family with whom you have got engaged l, get the things clarified and you can ask them to give it writing that they are not willing to get their girl married to you and they have no claimagaist you. Please note, this is optional.

You can marry any another girl since marriage is not solemnized between you and that girl. She cannot even file any sort of false complaint as it won't withstand before the court. Even she can also marry any other boy as per her wish.
