One hundred and sixty couples,who were displaced after last month's riots and were living in a relief camp, tied the knot at a mass wedding at Shahpur in the district.

The 'nikah' was performed by Maulana Mahmood Madani, general secretary of Jamiat Ulama-i-Hind, last evening for the victims displaced by the communal riots.

The organisation has provided Rs 15,000 each and essential items for daily use to the newly-wed couples, Madani said.

Several people have lost their homes and were forced to live in relief camps after the Muzaffarnagar riots that claimed at least 62 lives.
