Two sister marry same man at same time in Karnataka

Bigamy is a serious offence (Section 494, IPC) under the Hindu Marriage Act, and unless one’s divorce their first wife, the second marriage is not considered legal.

Every day in internet we come across many bizarre incident, now a man named Umapathy from Karnataka's Kolar tied the knot with two sister at same time.


The wedding took place in Kurudumale temple, located in Mulbagal in Kolar district on May 7. The video of the ceremony went viral on Saturday.


The bigamy is illegal in India, but the story behind it is not less than any movie. A condition put forth by a women Lalitha who was originally proposed to marry by Umapathy. The condition by Lalitha was to marry her sister who is speech impaired. The families of the bride and groom agreed on this suggestion in the end.


However, the decision didn’t turn out to be in their favour when the video went viral. The police had arrested Umapathy, as one of the brides happens to be a minor. 


Previously also the bride's father Nagarajappa had also married two siblings (Raniyamma and Subbamma) at the same venue as one of the sisters was suffering from speech impairment. 


Sounds like a direct from a movie script right?
