In a filmy turn of events, a man in Idukki eloped with a woman after calling his ‘lover’ to a registrar office with the promise that they would get married there.
There’s more twist to the story the woman whom he eloped with turned out to be a neighbor of the wouldhavebeen bride. Munnar police have registered a case against Akhilesh Soman (30) on a complaint filed by the woman, a native of Mankulam.
Latest reports said that Akhilesh and the girl whom he eloped with are now in police custody in Sulthan Bathery in Wayanad. In her complaint, the woman alleged that the man took gold and over Rs 1.5 lakh after promising to marry her.
When Akhilesh showed no inclination for the marriage, the woman’s parents and relatives intervened in the matter. Akhilesh then assured them that he would marry her and asked the woman and her family to come to the registrar office in Devikulam Monday morning.
However, when the bride and family turned up at the registrar office, there was no trace of Akhilesh. Soon, they found that their ‘groom’ had eloped with their neighbor.
