SRINAGAR: With inter-state borders tight and the priority to get the essential items and stranded people back to their homes, Lakhanpur, Jammu and Kashmir’s erstwhile gateway is witnessing a new rush. The Punjabi grooms are waiting to get entry so that they can take their brides from Jammu home.

Chandigarh based newspaper Tribune reported that though they carry “proper documents and movement passes”, the grooms are still spending a day at the gateway. In between, they lose their Shub Mahurat.

The newspaper said that before they are being permitted in, the officials screen them and take samples from them for Covid-19 tests.

Kanwardeep Singh, a groom from Amritsar, told the newspaper that he missed his early morning marriages because he was not permitted to get into Jammu and Kashmir. Rahul Kumar of Pathankot said he was permitted to move in at 5:30 pm, after a day-long wait.

“On Wednesday, there were five grooms from Punjab who were made to wait at Lakhanpur for their entry into J&K,” the newspaper reported.
