INDIA NEWS: A man from Patna, Bihar resorted to marrying his girlfriend during lockdown while his wife remained stranded at her parents’ home reports Times Now.
Dhiraj Kumar asked his wife, Gudiya Devi who had taken a trip to visit her parents to immediately return home following news of the lockdown. Devi, however, told him that it was impossible to travel amid lockdown due to the unavailability of any public transport, reports Gulf News. Angered by this, Dhiraj allegedly married his girlfriend who lives in the same block and brought her home. Devi lodged a complaint against her husband -with whom she has a child – as soon she learned about his actions. He was immediately arrested and sent to jail after his wife’s complaint, confirmed a police officer.
