Bihar Vet Called To Animal Survey, Then Kidnapped, Married Forced!

A veterinarian, called to look after a sick animal, was abducted by three people and forcibly married in Begusarai in Bihar on Tuesday.
"He was called around 12:00 to look for a sick animal, after which 3 people were abducted. Everyone in the house was worried and then we went to the police," a relative of the victim, quoted by ANI, said.

After the incident the father of a veterinarian lodged a complaint with the police.

"The boy's father (veterinarian) filed a complaint at the police station. We have asked SHO and other officials to investigate the matter. Strict action will be taken," said Yogendra Kumar, SP, Begusarai. .

Kidnapping of a bridegroom or 'Pakadwa Vivah' is common in parts of Bihar, Jharkhand and Uttar Pradesh where boys are forced to marry while being pointed at guns. Potential boyfriends, especially those with money and welfare, are kidnapped by the bride's family and often beaten to make themselves submissive.
