Bhubaneswar: Proving the age-old adage, “marriage is made in heaven”, acid attack victim Pramodini Raul of Jagatsinghpur district is all set to tie the nuptial knot tomorrow with her quintessential choice of love.
Groom Saroj Sahu has been her friend, guide and philosopher since 2016 and extended her helping hand soon after she recouped from her critical condition as she had been admitted to Cuttack SCB Medical College and Hospital in 2009 till 2014 following the inhumane attack on her on April 18 in 2009. Pramodini had gone into comatose at SCB since hospitalization.
Saroj, who had been the man Friday during her post medical care days, gradually turned to be her sagacious soul mate.
Eventually, they made up their mind to be showered with conjugal bliss for which both got solemnly engaged at a café in Lucknow in 2018 with the due consent of both the families.
Notably, Pramodini had to undergo the ordeal when she was pursuing +2 studies at Tirtol-based Adi Kabi Sharala Das College. A jawan from the security force camped near the college had developed a one-sided love with her and had relentlessly resorted to the devilish act of hurling acid on her face when his proposal was reportedly turned down as she had been too young for marriage.
