Cash reward to find runaway groomJune 4th, 2008 - 8:45 pm ICT by IANS
Raipur, June 4 (IANS) A poor villager of Chhattisgarh has announced a cash reward for anyone providing any information about his son who is missing since April 21, minutes after he was married to a girl against his wishes. Though police had registered a case of “missing” and still looking for the runaway groom, the family members of the bride as well as of the groom strongly believe that the groom was “carried away” by ghosts or some evil forces.
Brijlal, a poor farmer, of village Bhurkuni of Dhamtari district has appealed through local newspapers here Wednesday that he would offer Rs. 20,000 in cash to anyone who provides information about his son Tekeshwar Sahu.
The groom vanished from Nimora village in Raipur district, 25 km from here, on April 21, soon after his marriage ceremony to Manisha amid feasting and music. Sahu fled after telling close relatives that he was going to the toilet, village residents said.
Brijlal has also rejected police claims that his son is on the run as his marriage was executed against his wishes. He blames some evil forces for the mysterious disappearance of his 22-year-old son.
A shocked Arjun Singh, father of the bride, is still hopeful that his son-in-law will emerge from hiding soon and will take back Manisha to his village.
