A junior college in Andhra Pradesh's Rajahmundry city has initiated disciplinary action on two minor students who got married in their classroom.

A video of the boy tying a thread around the girl's neck in an empty classroom went viral on social media. The students are reportedly studying Intermediate second year (equivalent to Class 12) and a friend of theirs has also been reprimanded for shooting the incident on his mobile phone. The three students were issued Transfer Certificates (TC) by the college and were dismissed from the campus after the East Godavari district collector D.
