22 riot-hit people tie the knot

April 04, 2005 17:44 IST

Twenty-two young men and women of riot-affected families from Gujarat's Dahod district tied the knot at a mass marriage ceremony in Ahmedabad.

Delhi-based nongovernmental organisation Guild of Service organised the ceremony at Fatehpura village's Relief Colony on Sunday, Guild sources said.

The newly weds were later presented with gifts, including household articles, by the Guild and the Islami Relief Committee of Gujarat.

The tribal-dominated Dahod district was one of the worst affected areas during the post-Godhra riots, sources said.
