A Prabhu, a 36-year-old Dalit MLA, married Soundarya on Monday morning at his residence. The bride’s father, who didn’t comply with the marriage, tried to barge into their residence and attempt suicide.
Accusing AIADMK’s Kallakurichi MLA of abducting his 19-year-old daughter and “violating his trust”, a temple priest in Tamil Nadu doused himself in petrol and threatened to line himself ablaze before the police stepped in and took him into custody. A Prabhu, a 36-year-old Dalit MLA, married Soundarya on Monday morning at his residence. The bride’s father, who didn’t comply with the marriage, tried to barge into their residence and attempt suicide.
A senior policeman said: “It may be an incontrovertible fact that both the MLA and therefore the girl had a relationship. Girl’s parents complained that the MLA was crazy together with her for the past four years (even when she was a minor) while the MLA claims that their affair was hardly four months old.”
The bride’s father said Prabhu grew up with them for several years at their home which they always considered him as their son. He alleged that Prabhu had “broken that trust”. He claimed his daughter was lured into a relationship that she wasn’t prepared for marriage as there’s an age gap of 17 years between the couple.
Countering the allegations, Prabhu released a video alongside Soundarya to clarify that they had been during a relationship for four months which he didn’t abduct her. Denying all allegations, Prabhu said he sought permission from the girl’s parents to marry her but they refused.
