What was supposed to be a memorable period for a couple turned out to be a nightmare as a wedding gift they received from an unknown person brought them a misfortune that took the lives of two persons and left another in critical condition.
According to reports sighted by MyNewsGh.com, a newly married man and his grandmother were killed in India when a wedding gift they were opening exploded.
The man’s wife was critically injured in the blast in the eastern state of Odisha, police said.
Soumya Sekhar and Reema Sahu got married and they received the “gift” at their wedding reception a few days later.
It was actually a parcel bomb and did not have the sender’s address of it, police said.
The parcel exploded as soon as it was unwrapped, relatives told local media.
Mr Sehu and his 85-year-old grandmother, Jemamani Sahu, died from their injuries in a hospital.
The motive for the attack is not clear, police said, however they suspect it was carried out by someone in the area.
