Singrauli: A unique incident has come to light from Singrauli in Madhya Pradesh. A 32-year-old woman married a 16-year-old minor boy and fled with him. The case pertains to the Khutar Chowki area of Singrauli. Now the parents of the minor are stumbling from pillar to post to look for the son. They allege that investigation is being done only on paper.
In fact, Kamlesh Shah's son, a resident of Khutar, who is studying in class 12, was married to a 32-year-old woman on the orders of the Sarpanch in his absence. According to the minor's father, his son's age is just 16 years and 4 months. After getting married on the orders of the Sarpanch, the 32-year-old woman stayed with the 16-year-old minor boy for five days in her in-laws' house and on May 13, the woman ran away with her minor husband.
The victim's father has filed a case from the police to the Child Welfare Committee. Subsequently, Singrauli Collector Rajiv Ranjan Meena has directed to constitute a team led by SDM Rishi Pawar and conduct an inquiry. The SDM has recorded the statements of the minor boy's parents as well as the parents of the school. It is worth mentioning that the 32-year-old married woman is a resident of Khutar village, who had her first marriage 7 years ago, but after staying in her in-laws for one year, the woman divorced her husband and started living in her home. Then she had a second marriage in the month of March in UP's Shaktinagar, but she did not have it there and she started living again. In the meantime, the woman reached the sarpanch's house with the insistence of marrying a half-age young man living in her neighbourhood. The sarpanch sent two of his men and got the young man married in the presence of people in the gram panchayat. After staying in the in-laws for 5 days, the woman fled with her minor husband. After the escape, the minor's father Kamlesh Shah lodged a complaint with the Singrauli Child Welfare Committee.
