While the rest of the baaratis crossed the river on foot, the bride got stuck. Due to the rise in the water level of the river, the groom did not allow his wife to get into the water for her safety. The groom Shiva Kumar then came to her rescue and carried his newly wed bride on his shoulder and made her cross the Kankai river.
While the groom lifted the bride on his shoulder, people present there clicked several pictures and video of this incident and uploaded it on social media.
