According to the bride's family, Bitupan and Prathana Bora were in love with each other for quite a long time and that they were aware of the relationship. His family too was in the know of things and they had already made the wedding plans before the untimely demise of Prathana.

"Few days before, Parthana suddenly fell ill and she was taken to a private hospital in Guwahati. Though we tried a lot but we couldn’t save her. She died on Friday evening," Subhon Bora- one of her relatives said. A devastated Bitupan came to the funeral armed with the wedding materials.

"When Bitupan arrived, he announced that he was going to marry her. We couldn’t say anything because this was beyond our imagination. We were wondering whether someone can love my sister this deep. And yet, here we are witness to it," Subhon, Prathana’s cousin said.

"Through the entire process of the "marriage", Bitupan was crying and performing all the rituals. My sister was really fortunate. She wanted to become the bride of Bitupan and the man fulfilled her last wish. What more can I say," Subhon said, adding that the entire family was moved by the act of love.
