A couple tied the knot at a marriage hall in Madhya Pradesh’s Ratlam on April 26, with the permission of the local administration wearing personal protection equipment (PPE) kits as groom’s Covid-19 report came positive a week before i.e. on April 19.
The marriage ceremony was conducted following the government’s Covid-19 protocols. The video and photos of the wedding are going viral in which the couple can be seen dancing and taking ‘pheras’ around the havan kund.
The video meanwhile drew mixed response from the netizens. While some users termed the video as a perfect example of true love, others called it a stupidity and said they should have postponed the wedding seeing the crisis around and being a victim themselves.
However, the couple followed all rituals of the wedding as was being told to them by the priest who was also spotted in a PPE suit. The family members and police officials were also part of the ceremony.
As per police officials they got to know from some locals
that the groom had tested positive and was getting married, therefore they
rushed to the venue to stop the marriage.
Meanwhile, when they reached the venue, they saw the couple was following all the covid19 protocols and on the request of the family members and couple, the police gave permission and made everyone wear the safety kits and later on the wedding took place in the presence of senior officials.
