A similar marriage took place on Thursday in Lat village of Hawalbag development block of the district in Coronakal. This step was taken as a precaution in the event of the bride’s report of the sample given Corona positive two days ago.

The procession from Bikaner (Rajasthan) had also left for the bride’s house. But in the meantime, information was received from the base hospital that the corona examination report of the bride was positive. This brought the whole family into a panic.
Kisan Morcha District President Harish Kanwal came to know about this. They tried to find a way to get this marriage done on the fixed date and time. He contacted the administration. It was decided that the marriage should be done by providing PPE kit to the bride and groom and the priest who performed the rituals of the marriage.
The bride’s parents and brother also performed all the wedding rituals in the PPE kit. The bride and groom garlanded each other in the PPE kit and took seven rounds as a witness to the fire. The corona-infected bride was quarantined after the marriage was concluded. It was told that the groom’s side is a native of village Palampur (Deghat) in Almora district, but these people are residents of Bikaner (Rajasthan).
