Millions of people across the country are under lockdown in an attempt to prevent the spread of coronavirus pandemic. Now, the government has extended the current shutdown for 19 days which will end on May 3.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi has urged all citizens of India to stay at home and avoid social gatherings as part of precautionary measures to contain coronavirus outbreak.
Meanwhile, shocking news has come from Bihar. The woman had gone to her parents, but she could not come back to her husband’s house due to the shutdown which was immediately imposed across India in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic. When the woman could not return, the husband got married again amid the close down.
Dheeraj Kumar, who is a resident of Bharatpura village, Bihar, got married a few years back in Purana of Karpi police station area. Dheeraj was so angry with his wife after she was stranded in the lockdown at her parents’ place, that he decided to tie the knot with his ex-flame.
The incident took place at Bihar’s Paliganj where a local Dheeraj Kumar was leading a happy life with his wife. Shortly before the closure was announced throughout the country, Dheeraj’s wife had gone to her parents’ place at Dulhin Bazar.
The helpless woman is left with no option as the extended lockdown added to her woes and further strained the couple’s relationship.
The moment his wife got to know about his second marriage, she rushed to the nearby police station and lodged an FIR against her husband charging him with infidelity. The police gave him an appearance notice requiring him to appear. Later, he was put behind the bars after verifying the facts.
