The community, not happy with their decision thus decided to restrict these families and not even allow them participate in the mass marriage celebration that will take place on May 20 and 21. They also published posters stating the same.
While Mena is left with just about six hectare of land that her late husband left, Rehman and his family earns their livelihood on what they get from this land.
On their denial, the Panchayat declared:
“No one will have anything to do with these families and no one will give anything to them. If anyone is found keeping any relation with these two families, they will face the consequences within community.”
