Bengaluru: A family of union law minister Sadananda Gowda secured a brief reprieve when the family court here on Wednesday declared the secret marriage between small-time actress Mythriya Gowda and Karthik Gowda as invalid.
The family of Sadananda Gowda is rejoicing as they can now perform the marriage of Karthik Gowda with the girl of their choice. The engagement of Karthik Gowda and a girl from Kushalnagar in Kodagu had taken place recently.
The court had stated that Maithriya failed to furnish details to prove that they are indeed married. The photographs of being together could not prove that they are married. She has also failed to provide pictures showing Karthik tying ‘mangalasutra’ and walking the ‘saptapadi’ (seven steps) along with him as per Hindu rituals.
Mythriya had filed another petition seeking that the court direct Karthik not to marry another woman. The second petition lost relevance as the court dismissed her claims that she was married to Karthik. Hence, Karthik can now enter wedlock with a girl engaged to him, claimed Gowda’s counsel.
