The marriage plans of the two youngsters were shattered after the groom’s father and the bride’s mother revived their young days’ love and both reportedly fled.
According to the Times of India, the incident took place in the Indian city of Surat where the marriage was scheduled for the second week of February, but the 48-year-old man and the 46-year-old woman, are nowhere to be found for 10 days now.
While the man disappeared from his house in the Katargam area, the woman left her house in Navsari. It is strongly suspected that they have eloped, leaving the families in an extremely embarrassing situation. Both families have filed missing persons’ reports with the police.
The bride and groom were preparing for their marriage for the past one year after they got engaged. They are from the same community and elders were taken into confidence before their engagement. However, the elopement barely a month before the marriage left everyone shocked.
The groom’s father, a textile businessman, who also deals in property, went untraceable around January 10. He is also a member of a political party and knew the bride’s mother since their younger years. They were neighbors in the Katargam area and were good friends too, the report said.
“They knew each other since they lived in the same society. Some of their close friends informed us after they eloped that they had a relationship in the past too. However, the woman got engaged to her current husband,” said a relative of both the families.
