KATHMANDU — Nepal Students Union, Dhulabari Campus leader, Anish Luintel, will be scaling Mt Everest where he will be unfurling the country’s national flag and displaying a copy of the Nepal’s Constitution to mark the Union’s anniversary.

At a press conference, NSU Central Chairman, Ranjit Karna, handed over Nepal and NSU’s banners and a copy of the Constitution to Luintel for that purpose.

“The country will now witness an economic revolution as the youth want to see development in the country,” Karna said.

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.
