    In Kendrapara district, a 20-year-old girl’s family publicly declared her dead and performed her post-death rituals to protest her marriage. The girl, Dipanjali Mallick, married her boyfriend Rajendra Mallick in a temple on August 28. Upset with their daughter’s decision, her parents severed ties with her and pronounced her dead.

    The girl’s father, Muna Mallick, stated that they had filed a police complaint against Rajendra when the couple eloped. The police traced them and returned their daughter, but Dipanjali rebelled and went ahead with the marriage. This deeply hurt her parents and damaged their reputation. They performed the funeral rituals to publicly declare that she was dead to them.
