PATNA: A village court in Bihar divided three children of a woman between two “fathers” after she eloped with a private tutor and married him.
The bizarre incident took place at Kurusela village in eastern Bihar’s Katihar district yesterday.
As per reports, a local teacher Gopal Mandal had been teaching the children of Chandani Devi at home when she fell in love with the tutor.
Subsequently, she eloped with her boyfriend but returned home soon.
On Tuesday, her husband strongly protested to her activities leading to tension at the village.
Subsequently, the local villagers got her married with her boyfriend but problems arose over who will take care of her three children.
After much deliberation, the villagers allowed the woman to go with her one-year-old child whereas her first husband was told to take care of two children.
