Irom Sharmila gets married in Kodaikanal

Chennai: Civil rights activist Irom Chanu Sharmila on Thursday married her lover Desmond Coutinho in Kodaikanal in Tamil Nadu.

The low-key ceremony was held in the sub-registrar’s office in the hill station in Dindugal

The low-key ceremony was held in the sub-registrar’s office in the hill station in Dindugal district.

“The two came in the morning and completed the formalities. They also exchanged garlands,” an official in the sub-registrar office said.

Sharmila, who hails from Manipur and fought against the Armed Forces (Special Powers) Act (AFSPA) by going on a hunger strike for 16 years, decided to settle in Kodaikanal after badly losing the assembly poll in her home state this year. She had polled just 90 votes which made her decide to quit politics and settle in life, said an associate.

Some political outfits and people had objected to her marriage while some people had supported her during the two-month notice period for marriages conducted in the sub-registrar’s office.
