Marriage ceremony of a bureaucrat officer scheduled today has been postponed after Family Court Thoubal intervened following a complaint made by a girl who claimed to have been eloped and already used her more than a wife on promise that the bureaucrat officer will marry her.
Dr. Mayengbam Veto Singh, (32) an MCS officer, who hails from Mayeng Lamjao Makha Leikai in Kakching district presently is serving as Examination Controller of the Manipur Public Service Commission (MPSC). His marriage ceremony has been scheduled today with one 30 years old girl Dr. Priyadarshini Phurailatpam from Sagolband Meino Leirak. Today morning an advertisement column appeared at Manipuri Vernacular daily “Huiyen Lanpao” stating that the marriage has been postponed due to unavoidable circumstance surprising everyone and were anxious to know the reason for the postponement of the Marriage.

As per the submission of the plaintiffs, Ksh. Anju Devi Dr. Veto and her came to know each other in 2014 at New Delhi and started having affairs the following year. She filed the court that she was eloped by Dr. Veto on November 18, 2019. Family member of both met the next morning and scheduled to fix a date for marriage by meeting on November 27.
