Chhattisgarh Man Marries His 2 Girlfriends At The Same Time
Bastar: In an unusual wedding, a 24-year-old man got married to two women together. The marriage ceremony, which took place on January 5, came to the limelight after wedding video and invitation card of Chandu Maurya’s marriage function went viral on social media.
It all started three years ago, when Chandu Maurya, a marginal farmer and labourer of a remote village of Maoist-affected Bastar district in Chhattisgarh, went to install electricity poles in Tokapal area. There the man met 21-year-old tribal girl Sundari Kashyap and both fell in love. They then kept in touch over phone calls and planned to marry.
A year later, 20-year-old Haseena Baghel reached Chandu’s village Tikralohnga to attend a relative’s marriage. Chandu fell in love again.
Both the girls Hasina and Sundari used to like Chandu Maurya, the groom. They married him in the same mandap in Tikara Lohnga village of Bastar.
This kind of marriage is a crime in the Hindu Marriage Act. However, no case has been registered against it.
