Authorities Intervene after Village Panchayat Orders Man To Marry Minor Daughter For Accidentally Killing Calf

In Madhya Pradesh, a man had been ordered to wed his minor little girl after he incidentally murdered a calf. The town panchayat had given the order to the man to wed her girl as a method for penance for murder.

But a rapid action by nearby authorities and police prevented this setback.

The local  organization and police halted the marriage in a town under Pathariya Police Station in Vidisha region, announced Indian Express

In remote areas of Madhya Pradesh, social amends is viewed as an approach to punish individuals associated with an inauspicious episode. As a rule, men are solicited to wed their girls irrespective of her age, on the grounds that the villagers accept kanyadaan in the guilty party’s family as the best way to avert the curse.

He took a plunge in the Ganges and was to throw a feast to the people in his village. In any case, they denied and requested that he wed his little girl.
