Unable to find a wife, a 26-year-old man has approached the police to help him solve his ‘problem’.
Last year, Azeem Mansuri went to the Kairana police station to seek help from the sub-divisional magistrate (SDM).
“He addressed a letter to the SDM, through us, to help him find a wife,” said Kairana SHO Premveer Rana.
Then, he wrote to Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath but got no response.
Shamli Kotwali SHO Satpal Singh said, “He came to us with a request to find him a bride. He says it is our duty to do ‘public service’ and find him a bride. We do not know what to do. But we will see what can be done.”
Azeem suffers from dwarfism and hence is two feet tall. His parents tried to find a suitable match for him but failed.
“People come but because of his height, they turn him down,” said his brother-in-law Kasif.
He is the youngest of six siblings. The taunts and insults he received in school made him leave school in class five. Since the age of 10 he has been assisting at a cosmetics store owned by one of his brothers.
