Mortuary marriage Dead wife is witness at husbands marriage to her younger sister

THE Jimmy Savile Fan Club welcomes Sujit Kumar, who married his dead wife’s sister at a mortuary in Bihar, India.

The deceased wife, one Pushpa Kumari, had committed suicide, her body taken to the mortuary for a postmortem. Death would not be her last act. Pushpa acted as a witness at Sujit’s marriage to her younger sister Rashmirath.

This macabre ceremony was, reportedly, performed under duress. Gulf News says that when Pushpa’s parents learned of their daughter’s death they threatened to register a murder case against Sujit and his family unless the widower agreed to marry his dead wife’s sister:

The victim’s parents reportedly then asked the in-law’s family to allow the widower to marry the victim’s younger sister Rashmirathi, which Sujit’s family agreed to.

So. They married at the mortuary.

Good luck with that, Rashmirathi. Any more like you at home..?
