Gorkha Post



KALAIYA — The Central Regional Police Office, Hetaunda, suspended four policemen – a head constable and three constables – in connection with the kidnapping of Birgunj-based industrialist Suresh Kedia a week ago.

Head Constable Tej Bahadur Dhakal and Constable trio Pramod Kumar Yadav, Wunil Mahato and Surendra Prasad Saha – currently deployed at the Police Post in Kabahi Goth of Bara – district were suspended.

They were suspended to look into how the jeep carrying Kedia was successful in escaping the police checking, according to the law enforcement officials.

Earlier, four personnel from the Armed Police Force were also arrested.

It has been learned that two teams under the command of APF AIG Krishna Kumar Tamang and Nepal Police AIG Kedar Saud are probing the case.

Kedia was abducted at gunpoint by an armed gang last Thursday, from Bariyarpur of Bara. He was rescued from Motihari of India on Sunday.

Man divorces wife just 15 minutes after Islamic marriage in Dubai

A man in Dubai divorced his bride just 15 minutes after their Islamic marriage as he felt ‘insulted’ by her father’s bride price demands.

The man agreed to pay his new father-in-law Dh100,000 for their wedding but the older man became impatient to get the cash, DailyMail reported.

According to Gulf News, family members and friends accompanied the couple to a Sharia judge’s office to witness the marriage contract being signed. The groom then gave Dh 50,000 on the spot as agreed, with the rest to come after the party left the court building, according to Gulf News.

But, the bride’s father demanded the remaining cash as soon as the signing was over, even though the groom didn’t have it on him.

He said it would only take five minutes to walk to his car, which was parked outside, and get the rest of the bride price.

Instead of letting him retrieve it, the father insisted him to pay either right then or send a friend or relative to get the money while he stayed inside.

The groom felt insulted and demeaned by the series of demands and called off the marriage immediately, a lawyer handling the case said.

‘He told the bride’s father that he did not want his daughter as his wife and divorced her in less than 15 minutes from signing the marriage contract,’ he said.
