In a rare marriage scene, a man tied the knot with his girlfriend in an intensive care unit (ICU) after she attempted suicide as the man had allegedly refused her marriage proposal earlier, NDTV reported on Friday.

The man, however, escaped the scene right after the marriage. The incident took place in India’s Pune district where a woman consumed poison on November 27 following which she was rushed to the hospital.

While digging deeper into the matter, the police communicated that it was an attempt to suicide after the patient’s marriage proposal was rejected.

The woman later filed a case of rape against her absconding lover. In her complaint, she had claimed that Suraj Nalavade had forced her to have a physical relationship with him. However, when she proposed him for marriage he allegedly refused, saying that she belongs to a lower caste, police said.

According to law enforcement officials, a first information report (FIR) has been registered against Nalwade — under IPC section 376 (punishment for rape).
