Shocking! Minor Girl Married To Stray Dog In Dhenkanal
Dhenkanal: A minor girl was married off to a stray dog in order to ward off bad luck at Debgansahi in Karagola gram panchayat of Dhenkanal district.
Reportedly, the wedding was held lavishly three days after Mage Parab – a tribal festival.
According to reports, the tribals believed that the emergence of the first tooth on the upper jaw of a baby is inauspicious. Moreover, it is also considered that if they don’t perform the ritual, the child may face danger in the future.
Consequently, any child whose first tooth emerged on the upper jaw is wed to a dog.
