MUGU – An elderly man, 70, and a 42-year-old woman have tied the knot in a court marriage first ever of this kind in the district, according to the District Court, Mugu.

District judge Dil Kumar Bardewa confirmed that the court marriage was first in the district as of now. Pyari Lal Kafle of Soru Rural Municipality-7 and Janaki Rokaya of Khatyad Rural Municipality got married through a legal process. “Although we have an age difference of 28 years, I consented on my own,” said Rokaya.
