Today News | Coronavirus| COVID Era: Couple Ties Knot In PPE Kits; Infected Groom Likely To Face Music For Norms Violation

Ratlam (MP): While most people spend lakhs on their wedding attire, a couple in Madhya Pradesh’s Ratlam district tied the knot wearing PPE kits after the groom tested positive for coronavirus.

According to the district authorities, the 28-year-old groom may now face action for allegedly violating the government order by stepping out of the containment zone.

A video of the couple taking their ‘saat pheras’ in the protective gear has gone viral on social media at time when the second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic has engulfed the country.

In the purported video, the 25-year-old bride and the groom are seen participating in the ceremony, while a priest, also in the PPE kit, is chanting mantras.

The marriage was solemnised at a function hall in the presence of eight people at Indira Nagar of Ratlam, an official said.

The administration had got information about the wedding of a coronavirus infected person on Monday, Naib Tehsildar Naveen Garg said.
