Engineer forced to marry a woman in Bihar


A 29-year-old engineer was reportedly forced to marry a woman 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.

The incident came to light when the video of the marriage surfaced after which the girl’s family approached Binod for settlement and accept the marriage.

Narrating the sequence of events Binod’s brother Sanjay 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 persuaded him to come to Mokama and he agreed. He was abducted there and taken to Pandarak where my brother was forced to marry a girl.”

Binod can be seen wailing in the video pleading for help to free him amid few women performing marriage rituals. He was thrashed and forced to apply vermillion on bride’s head.

However, girl’s brother Umesh Prasad denied that it was a forced marriage saying, “We know Binod for a long time and even had initiated talks with his father and extended marriage proposal. After his father’s death Binod was ready for marriage and it was a planned event.”

However, he became evasive when asked about the marriage video in which the groom was being thrashed. “I do not know about any video. He is now opposing this marriage at the behest of his brother. I wish they live a happy married life.”

The role of the local police has also come under the scanner. Sanjay lodged a complaint with Pandarak police station when his brother did not reach home as planned and instead got a call from an unknown number who informed about the marriage.

“Pandarak police told us that Pakadua Vivah is common among Ahirs and tried to force upon a compromise formula under pressure from Surendra Yadav who boasts his link with jailed RJD leader Lalu Prasad Yadav,” Sanjay said.

Then he approached Patna SSP Manu Maharaj on whose direction Pandarak Police freed Binod from the village where he was kept after the forced marriage.

After a month of the incident, Binod and his brother are getting threat calls to accept the girl and take her along. On Wednesday, Binod approached Patna city SP Amarkesh to seek protection.
