Once a man is married, he has nearly no chance of ending his marriage with the several Gender Biased Laws. However, a woman can choose to marry, and then also elope with her boyfriend, taking along all the jewelry and cash she would have collected in her marriage. In the second scenario, society calls it, “My Body My Choice”.
In a shocking incident reported from Madhya Pradesh’s Chhatarpur district, a newlywed bride eloped with her lover just after 18-days into her wedding. The newlywed was visiting her parents home for some post-wedding ritual and was supposed to return to her in-laws a few days later. However in the meantime, she eloped with her lover who lived in her maternal village. As per reports, she also took along jewellery worth lakhs and some money while running away.
A 20-year-old woman, Murthy Raikwar, got married to Rahul from Jalaun, Uttar Pradesh on December 6. However, within less than three weeks into the marriage, the woman ran away with her lover named Bhajju Yadav on December 24.
As soon as the matter came to light, the woman’s family members reached the police station and filed a report about their daughter’s escape. The whole incident happened in Chhatarpur’s Chirwari village under the jurisdiction of Alipur police station.
The local police have launched an investigation and search for the couple after registering a case of their disappearance.
Meanwhile, when the woman’s husband, Rahul was informed about the incident, he reached Murthy’s house and created a lot of uproar.
Speaking about the incident, the woman’s father, Rampal said that his son-in-law has sought for his wife and the jewellery she took immediately. Rampal further added that his daughter has taken jewellery worth about Rs 5 lakh and Rs. 20,000 cash.
