Moreover, in a goodwill gesture, Tutu donated his two months’ salary of Rs 12,000 to the Chief Minister Relief Fund (CMRF) to help the Government in its fight against coronavirus.
Tutu, a computer teacher, tied the nuptial knot with one Twinkle Sahu of Nuasahi at Raipada village at the Collectorate at around 12 pm today. To ensure that the lockdown norms are not violated, Additional District Magistrate (ADM) Bidhan Chandra Ray and Sub-collector Lagnajit Rout were present during the wedding.
As per sources, the couple was supposed to get married on December 9, last year. But, the marriage was later called off on personal grounds. The wedding dates were rescheduled thrice to December 25, February 28 and April 27.
After the lockdown further extended to May 3, the two families decided not to postpone the wedding further and thus, with prior permission from the district administration and in their presence, they solemnized the marriage at the Collector office while maintaining social distancing.
