Patna: A village court in Bihar got a newly-wed woman married to her boyfriend after she admitted to being in love with him.
The marriage was solemnised on Thursday in the presence of the woman’s husband with his consent.
The incident took place at Motipur village in Muzaffarpur district, some 80km north of Patna.
As per the report, the woman was married eight months ago but remained in regular touch with her boyfriend over phone.
Likewise, the boyfriend would regularly visit and meet her, pretending to be the woman’s brother as none in the in-laws’ family suspected them.
On Wednesday evening, however, both were caught red-handed in a compromising position by the woman’s husband in his bedroom after which the youth was badly thrashed by the local villagers.
As the matter reached the local villagers, a village court was held on Thursday morning to decide their fate.
On being asked to explain her position, the woman said she doesn’t want to stay with her husband and wanted to marry her boyfriend.
Subsequently, the court sought the views of the woman’s husband and he too gave his consent for their marriage.
After hearing both sides, the villager court ordered the woman to marry her boyfriend. The wedding took place in the presence of the woman’s husband.
