A girl’s decision to annul her marriage which was solemnised in her infancy has invited the wrath of the village panchayat which has slapped a hefty fine of Rs. 16 lakh and banished the family from the community.

Santadevi Meghwal, belonging to Rohichan Khurd village in Luni tehsil here, decided to call off her marriage which was finalised when she was eleven months old.
