    The marriage, which took place on April 27, was arranged reportedly because of the ill health of mother.

    According to reports, the woman's husband is an alcoholic and she was allegedly worried about her son. She wanted somebody to look after him after her death. She believed that the family would at least have somebody to take care of domestic chores if her eldest son was married off to an adult woman. Eventually, they found a girl through relatives.

    The bride is daughter of a couple from Chanikaur village in Karnataka's Bellary district.

    Both the families are reportedly absconding ever since the marriage which came to light. The police are searching for them and the joint collector has ordered a probe.
