Gulf Times report that the 22-year-old man, Suraj Mahto, made headlines in June when abandoned his wife, Lalita, and married her 42-year-old mother, Asha Devi, but now he is back creeping to his wife and begging for forgiveness.

The affair allegedly began when the mother-in-law came to stay with the couple in the village of Puraini in Bihar,  in the north-eastern part of India, last year, to look after Mahto when he became ill but they later fell in love and decided to get married.

Lalita was reported to have found about the affair and told her mother to leave her young husband alone but Devi refused, claiming they were madly in love.

Despite objections of villagers, the couple eloped and married on June 1 this year in nearby Dhamdaha, but now, Mahto says he has come back to his senses and wants to go back to Lalita.

“I have come to realize my folly. I admit I have committed the mistake, but will never repeat in future.

Now, I no longer treat her as my wife. Rather, I have started paying her regard as a mother. I am on my knees begging Lalita to allow me to come back home for the sake of our son,” Mahto told Gulf News.

Devi on her part, is also regretting her actions, saying they have filed a divorce.

“I no longer treat him as my husband, but as a son-in-law. We have already filed a divorce petition in the court and I want to return to my husband as soon as possible.”
