The marriage between 24 years old Uddhav Nepal of Temkemaiyung Rural Municipality-7 and 17 years old girl was stopped by the police. The neighbor had informed police after finding out that it was a child marriage. The bridegroom party fled the scene after police came in the incident site according to ward chair Dilli Kumar Rai.

The constitution of Nepal has restricted the child marriage. The national and international law has determined anyone under 18 to be a child.
