Nalbari mob attack case | After calling off his marriage, man ties knot with bride

Guwahati, July 12: After calling off his marriage following the barbaric Nalbari mob attack, the groom tied the knot with the same girl at his residence on Wednesday night.

On Tuesday night, Mintu Kalita was supposed to tie the knot with a girl from Ghurathal. Marking the groom’s arrival at the wedding venue, the bride’s party started to burst firecrackers.

One Jiten Das, however, asked the bride’s party to stop bursting crackers fearing fire accident. Following a heated verbal duel, Das was brutally beaten to death by five drunken men from the bride’s party.

Kalita called off his wedding and went back with his family members and friends.

However, on Wednesday evening, the wedding took place in a private ceremony at the groom’s house in presence of both the family members.

The arrested five accused persons identified as Jiten Talukdar, Bidyut Barman, Dipankar Talukdar, Achyut Talukdar and Barun Talukdar were produced before the court today.
