NDTVPatna: A 29-year-old engineer was reportedly kidnapped and forced to marry a woman at gunpoint in Bihar. The video clips from the wedding show Vinod Kumar, a junior manager at Bokaro Steel Plant, dressed as a groom, being thrashed and forced to perform wedding rituals in Patna's Pandarak area. As he begs to be released and continues to cry for help, a group of women, allegedly from the woman's family, try to convince him to cooperate.
When he refuses to apply vermillion to the bride, her relatives are heard saying, "We are only performing your wedding, not hanging you."
Local media quoted the engineer as saying one of the bride's relatives had pointed a pistol at him after they met at a mutual friend's wedding and ordered him to marry her. His allegations are being investigated by the police.

Vinod Kumar kept crying as he was forced to perform wedding rituals.Last month, when Vinod did not reach home as planned, his brother Sanjay Kumar got worried and approached the police. He told them about a call from an unknown number informing him about his brother's 'Pakadua Vivah' (forced marriage).
He told News18, "My brother boarded Hatia-Patna express from Bokaro as he had to attend a wedding function near Patna on December 3. Surendra Yadav, the woman's brother, persuaded him to come to Mokama. He was abducted there and taken to Pandarak where my brother was forced to marry the woman."

However, the cops refused to help, Sanjay alleged.
Pandarak police station in charge Prabhakar Vishwakarma has denied the allegations. "We asked the boy's family to lodge an abduction case at Mokama because the alleged abduction took place there," he was quoted as saying by The New Indian Express.
Then he approached Patna Senior Superintendent of Police Manu Maharaj on whose directions Pandarak police freed Vinod from the village where he was kept after the forced marriage.

Ever since the incident, Vinod's family has been getting threat calls asking him to accept the girl forcing them to seek police protection.
"We are looking into it and will take action against the culprits. We are also probing the role of the local police," Patna city SP Amarkesh told News18.
The official figures, as reported by news agency AFP, show police received nearly 3,000 complaints of groom kidnapping in 2016. None of the marriages were annulled.

May 25 was meant to be a memorable day for Julie, a 19-year-old girl in Bihar's Muzaffarpur district, 70 km north of the state capital Patna. A beautician had visited her for makeup and Julie was sparkling in her bridal attire.

Her house was all decked up, the pandit (priest) was there to chant sacred mantra and Abhinay Kumar, a 22-year-old youth she was to tie the nuptial knot, was ready, though under duress. But, just when the marriage mantras were over, the police arrived; searching for the kidnapped groom after his parents registered a case to this effect. But as usual, the cops arrived late, and by the time the marriage was already over.

They still wanted to rescue the groom but the bride and her family - backed with relatives and villagers - put up a tough fight, forcing the cops to beat a hasty retreat. The cops returned an hour later, angrier than before; and in greater number. They swung their batons with such ferocity that it left nearly two dozen men and women, including Julie injured.

Now, a week later, with injuries all over her body, Julie is still struggling to walk straight. The Muzaffarpur senior superintendent of police Vivek Kumar has suspended Gayghat police station in-charge Rajesh Choudhary, holding him responsible for excesses. The only positive outcome for Julie in the entire drama was that her husband who was reluctant to marry her initially began to empathise, seeing her writhing in pain.

"I have accepted her as my better half. Whatever difference there is between our families, it will get over shortly. Time will heal everything," he says.
