36-year-old man marries a 6-year-old!

A six year old girl in Gangrar area of Chittorgarh, Rajasthan, gets married to a 36-year-old man, Ratanlal Jat, on the occasion of Akshay Tritiya.

A shocking revelation states that the man turns out to be a panch, one of the ward leaders, who has been given the responsibility of stopping child marriage.

According to reports, Jat decided to marry the girl after he was unable to find a suitable partner of his age. The marriage was done under the ancient 'Nata Pratha' prevalent in the community, where the man is allowed to marry a girl/woman of any age to be able to establish a relationship with other women outside the marriage.

A probe panel was set up by Collector Ved Prakash under the leadership of the Gangrar SDM seeking report on the matter.
