The wedding of an AIADMK legislator in Tamil Nadu, scheduled to be held on September 12, has been cancelled after his fiancee allegedly went missing. 

Bhavani Sagar MLA S. Easwaran, 43, was to marry R. Sandhya, 23, at the famous Bannari Amman temple in the presence of Chief Minister Edappadi K. Palanisamy and Deputy Chief Minister O. Panneerselvam. The marriage arrangements were in full swing both at Easwaran's and Sandhya's homes. The invitation sent out to all relatives and the AIADMK party members carries the names of the chief minister and the deputy chief minister as VVIP attendees. 

Sandhya, from Ukkaram near Gobichettipalayam in west Tamil Nadu, has gone missing since Saturday, according to a police complaint filed by her mother R. Thangamani. She, according to the complaint, had left her house around 11 am on Saturday saying that she would visit her sister in Sathyamangalam and come back. On enquiry, it was found that she had not gone to her sister’s place. Her mobile phone is also switched off. 

As per the complaint, Sandhya was in love with one of her friends named Vigensh from Kolathupalayam near Uthukuli in Tiruppur district. The police have registered a case and are investigating the case.
