Groom ends marriage after wife fails virginity test !

virginityA village caste panchayat in Nashik district, Maharashtra, has allowed a man to terminate his marriage 48 hours later, after the husband told them she had failed the ‘virginity test’.

As is the tradition in the village the groom is given a white bed sheet and told to return it after the marriage had been consummated. In this case the groom showed the panchayat there were no blood stains on the sheet, and he was allowed to terminate the marriage.

Social workers said the girl had been preparing for physical tests for recruitment in the police force and was involved in running, long jump, cycling and other exercises, and they will file a police complaint if no amicable solution is reached after a meeting with the caste leaders.
