|Man Kidnapped, Forced To Marriage At Gunpoint by Jahmmy(m): 12:02am On Jan 14|
Allegations a young engineer was kidnapped and made to marry at gunpoint are being investigated by police in one of India’s poorest states, which has a history of forced marriage of men.
Video footage apparently showing Vinod Kumar being forced to go through with a wedding by his bride’s family sparked the probe, police in the eastern state of Bihar said Friday.
‘Pakadua Vivah’ (forced marriage) is a practice specific to Bihar and surrounding areas, and is mainly carried out by poor families who cannot afford a dowry — still a widespread expectation in India.
A video circulated on social media shows the engineer being manhandled and forced to dress for the wedding as he pleads for freedom.
“We are only performing your wedding, not hanging you,” one man is heard to shout as Kumar begs to be released.
