UP: In a peculiar episode, a married woman eloped with her lover using the excuse that she was being denied eggs in her marital home. The incident took place in Gorakhpur district, Uttar Pradesh on Saturday.

According to the police, the woman, who lives in Campierganj, had earlier eloped with her lover four months ago and after she returned, she told the police that her husband did not give her eggs to eat and that made her upset. The woman fought with her husband on Saturday for eggs and, once again, ran away from her home.

Since her paramour was also not found at his house, it is believed that the two might have eloped together. The husband, a daily wage labourer said that he could not afford to buy eggs everyday for the family. He also alleged that his wife's lover took advantage of her weakness for eggs and started bringing them daily. "She was fond of eggs and her paramour regularly brought eggs for her," he added.(IANS)
