Sounds like a Bollywood climax?………..No! This happened for real. A couple in Madhya Pradesh got married on May 7 last year, while the bride ran away with the priest just within a month on May 23.
This was the same priest who performed her wedding rituals. No one in the vicinity were aware of their whereabouts until the priest, who was set to perform another wedding, was nowhere to be found.

This is not the first incident where a woman has left the man within days of wedding or on the day of her marriage. In another incident reported from Mumbai, on the pretext of going to a beauty parlour, this bride ran away from her wedding hall in Ulhasnagar deserting her would-be husband.
Frustrated and dejected, the groom then registered a cheating case against the girl and her family with Vitthalwadi police. The victim was a JCB operator in a private firm and had been staying in Talegaon for the past couple of years.
While stories about women leaving men can sound funny, the reverse result in sobbing sagas and blogs by social media users.
