Bhopal: Defying the social distancing norms, over 1,000 people gathered at the marriage function of a revenue officer at a village in Madhya Pradesh's Alirajpur district, police said on Tuesday.

An FIR has been registered against the 24-year-old groom, Kanu Chouhan, who is currently posted as 'patwari' (village-level revenue officer) in the state's Betul district, they said.

The wedding function was held on Monday in Bilasa village of Alirajpur district where none of the attendees wore masks, and they were dancing without following the social distancing guidelines to check the spread of COVID-19, a police official said.
