'What about COVID-19 protocol?' Netizens ask as a Madurai couple ties knot mid-air in flight with guests
Amid the second wave of COVID 19, a video of a Madurai couple tying the knot mid-air has left netizens baffled.
Several states in India have put COVID 19 restrictions related to lockdown to curb the spread of the virus amid the second wave. Tamil Nadu is one of them and amid the lockdown restrictions in TN, a Madurai based couple has hit the headlines for reportedly flouting COVID 19 rules by tying the knot mid-air with over 160 guests in a flight. A video of the couple's marriage is also doing rounds on social media and it has left netizens baffled and confused.
Rakesh and Dakshina, a Madurai based couple, reportedly tied the knot in a chartered plane with over 160 guests. They got hitched apparently when the plane was hovering over the Madurai Meenakshi Amman Temple in the presence of their near and dear ones. In the video, the couple and their relatives can be seen without masks and no social distancing. The couple apparently opted for mid-air wedding to avoid the on ground guest restrictions. As of the current restrictions in place in TN, the number of guests allowed in a wedding is restricted to 50.
Take a look:
It is evident from the video that all guests in the plane were not following social distancing rules and no masks were seen too. This 'mid air' wedding has evoked a strong reaction from Netizens amid the deadly second wave. A user wrote, "What about Covid Protocol??" Another wrote, "Kitney tejaswi log he hamery desh me." Another wrote, "Without mask wow". Another wrote, "Wow... one quick way to destroy the entire clan."
