Chandigarh, January 21

A young couple had to call off their wedding after the groom's father eloped with the bride's mother to rekindle their old romance.

The young couple, who have been engaged for over a year, were supposed to tie the knot in the second week of February in Surat.

However, the groom’s 48-year-old father and the bride’s 46-year-old mother ran away together, and have been missing for over 10 days now.

According to a report by Times of India, the groom's father, a business man and member of a local political party, left his house in Katargam around January 10 while the mother, who is married to a broker, left her house in Navsari.

While speaking to a close relative, it was revealed that two knew each other since they were kids and lived in the same neighbourhood.

Apparently, they were also in a relationship, before the bride’s mother got engaged to her husband.

The unforeseen elopement has reportedly left the families red-faced.
