Police said the Toro Police Department team raided a wedding at the Hotel Mangala Nilayam on NH-16 near Chhapulia Chowk on Sunday evening, which was attended by more than 200 people.

Inspector Madhumita Mohanty said a groom from West Bengal came to town to marry a local girl in violation of the COVID-19 rules set by the Odissa government. When the police arrived at the scene, the bride and groom immediately disappeared.

We collected ₹3,000 from the hotel owner and ₹5,000 from the groom’s family for violation of Covid guidelines. Though the organizers had taken permission for the marriage, they were penalized for inviting more people than prescribed,” stated the inspector. According to Corona rules, no more than 25 people can attend a wedding.

Earlier this month, Cuttack police fined a wedding organizer 50,000 yen for ignoring COVID-19 regulations.

The Covid situation in Odisha remains dire, with an average of 2,000 to 2,200 cases being reported per day, and the total number of victims exceeding 5,000 on Saturday. The government suggests that new infections in the state are primarily related to hidden cases.

"There were many symptomatic individuals too who did not opt for Covid test, spreading infection in the process. The spread can be contained by identifying and isolating the hidden asymptomatic cases," mentioned Dr. Bijay Mohapatra, director of health services. He said the state began three months of comprehensive surveillance and found more than 1 lakh cases.
