One of the relatives told the same report, "They knew each other since they lived in same society. Some of their close friends informed us after they eloped that they had a relationship in the past too." Sarita's current husband is a diamond artisan. Ramesh works as a textile businessman and has deals in property. The two have gone missing since January 10 and ever since their photos are being shared on social media, their elopement has become a talk of the town. However, now it doesn't restrict there.

There have been several cases where marriages have been called off. Being drunk and creating a scene has been a reason that we have commonly read off for marriages being called off right before the ceremony. In Uttar Pradesh, a bride called off her marriage after the groom under the influence of alcohol broke into a 'Nagin dance'. But this scenario of a twist in tale surpasses them all.
