Revolver Rani’ Varsha Sahu finally got married to Ashok Yadav at a temple in Hamirpur
Hamirpur,July10:Varsha Sahu, who got to be known as ‘Revolver Rani’ after she kidnapped her lover at the gunpoint and eloped, has finally tied the nuptial knot with him.
According to Hindustan Times, Varsha Sahu finally got married to Ashok Yadav at a temple in Hamirpur on Sunday.
Varsha had made headlines after she stormed into the wedding pandal brandishing a pistol and kidnapped her lover who was getting married to another woman in Maudaha in Bundelkhand on May 15.
Varsha’s marriage with her lover Ashok was solemnized at the Mata Chaura temple by the head priest and the ceremony was attended by hundreds of guests.
Interestingly, the local unit of the Shiv Sena made all the arrangements for the temple wedding and food that was served to the guests.
Interestingly, Shiv Sena state president Ratan Brahmchari even announced the launch of an NGO that would support girls ditched by their lovers.
“We have named the NGO as ‘Revolver Rani’ and it will be headed by Varsha. It will help girls like her in reuniting with their lovers,” Brahmchari was quoted as saying.
According to eye-witnesses, Varsha had put a revolver on Ashok’s head, leaving him with no choice but to go with her.
The duo was discovered in Banda 48 hours after the incident.
Later, it emerged that Ashok, a contractual employee with a government hospital, was in a live-in relationship with Varsha for eight years and had promised to marry her.
However, he decided to marry another girl chosen by his family which irked Varsha.
After the kidnapping incident, Laloo Yadav, the father of the girl with whom Ashok was to get married, filed a police complaint against him for cheating his family by not disclosing his relationship with Varsha and calling off the marriage at the last moment.
The police arrested Ashok and sent him to jail.
Ashok’s family did not press any charges against Varsha but also refused to bail him out. It was Varsha who arranged for his bail and finally married him on Sunday after his release.
