IN A bizarre incident, a jilted lover turned into a human bomb and blew himself up at a marriage ceremony in Hardoi district on Friday night. The incident also left several others injured.
Netrapal, an electrician tied crude bombs to his body, which were connected through circuit with a switch in the shoe.
The spurned lover had entered the marriage venue disguised as a woman, wearing a saree and bangles to gain entry at the function with an objective to blow up the groom.
Reports said that Madhu, a resident of Dhanyoli village was getting married to Ram Lakhan, a resident of village Sadhai Behta on Friday. Just before the kanyadaan, Netrapal, 22, a resident of the nearby village, reached the spot and started planting bombs on Ram Lakhan’s body. Some eyewitnesses said that Netrapal also tried to thrust some bombs inside Ram Lakhan’s mouth. However, though Ram Lakhan was saved, Netrapal was killed when the bombs that he was carrying exploded.
Interestingly, the marriage functions took place even after the incident and both the bride and the groom left the venue only after completing all the rituals.
Some villagers said that Netrapal had approached the groom earlier and asked him not to marry “his” girl.
ASP Vikramaditya Sawar said Netrapal was in love with the girl and upset with the girl’s response Nettrapal even gave threat to the family members of girl.
