Village court divides three children between two EoACAyfathers'.
As per the panchayat's order, one of woman's daughters will stay with her partner while her other two children -- a daughter and a son -- will live with her first husband. The woman is currently living with her partner. The incident occurred at Basbitta village in south-eastern Bihar's Banka district.
As per reports, villager Arun Singh had married Sunaina Devi of Teliya-Tikar village in neighbouring Jharkhand state some 10 years back and their conjugal life was well on the track. In due course, the couple had also three children.
In the meantime, however, Sunaina fell in love with a co-villager Shivcharan Singh, a next-door neighbour who too is married and has three children, and last week, she finally eloped with him. But, woman in the company of her partner did not go too far and instead reached her parents' home in Jharkhand for a night halt when the local villagers got wind of it and strongly objected to their relationship. They even communicated the matter to her in-laws.
Soon, the villagers held a court at Basbitta village where the eloping couple was produced for trial. After hearing both sides, the village court asked the partner to pay a fine of Rs11,000 as a condition for staying together. As the man paid the fine instantly, the court allowed the love-lorn couple to stay together, thus ended the week-long drama.
The court also asked the couple to take responsibility of proper upbringing of one of the three children the woman had from her first husband while her first husband was asked to take care of the rest two children.
