A seven-year-old boy in Jharkhand has been forced to marry a female dog to ward off his future bad luck, a media report said today.
According to report, Mukesh Kerayi’s horoscope predicted that his first wife would die young, and in order to avoid it Mukesh’s parents married him off with the dog.
Also, he had grown a tooth in the upper part of his mouth, which according to traditional beliefs is a bad omen, it reported.
“At the wedding, the dog was dressed in a bridal outfit, while the residents of Manik Bazar village turned out for the celebrations just like a normal marriage. However, after the ceremony was over, the dog was kicked back to the streets,” it said.
