Man calls off wedding due to AIDS stigma

The stigma associated with AIDS resulted in a marriage being called off in Tamil Nadu, Tamil Nesan reported.

The marriage between P. Sevugan, 38, of Sudanipatti and K. Anbuselvi of Vanjinipatti in Sivagangai district had been set for June 19.

The invitation cards were also printed when Sevugan decided to call off the wedding after hearing that Anbuselvi's parents had died of AIDS.

Anbuselvi showed him a medical report that gave her a clean chit but Sevugan remained adamant.

She filed a complaint at the Trippathur police station on June 5 seeking action against the groom.
