Unable to take time out from their tedious schedules, a couple got married in the groom’s office on Valentine’s Day. On Friday morning, Tushar Singla, a 2015 batch West Bengal cadre IAS officer posted as SDO in Uluberia, and Navjot Simi, a 2017 batch Bihar cadre IPS officer posted as DSP in Patna, received the marriage registrar at Singla’s office and signed on the dotted line.
Though Simi travelled all the way from Patna to get married in Bengal, both of them are from Punjab and have been in a relationship for a long time. According to officials in the SDO’s office, Singla had not been getting time to go to Punjab for the wedding and it had been getting postponed.
After the wedding, the couple promised a grand reception for all those present, but only after the 2021 state assembly elections in Bengal were over.
Though Singla was not available over phone, one of the officials close to him said the SDO was not ready to compromise with his duties.
Senior state officials said the couple is planning for a change in cadre so they can stay together.
