In a bizarre incident, a 70-year-old man named Malaisamy from Tamil Nadu filed a petition to the district collector stating that he wants to marry the badminton star, PV Sindhu. Malaisamy has stated in his petition that he wants to marry the 24-year-old World Badminton champion, PV Sindhu and he will abduct her and marry her if necessary arrangements for marriage are not made, according to a report in India Today.

A tweet related to this incident surfaced the internet and found its way on Twitter:

According to the news agency, the incident took place during the weekly meetings organised by the district collector where the general public can come and submit their grievances and petitions etc. Malaisamy reached the collectorate with a photo of himself and badminton gold medalist PV Sindhu and a letter insisting on his interest to marry the athlete. He also claimed that he is actually just a 16-year-old boy born on April 4, 2004. He stated that he was extremely impressed by the champion's career growth and that now he wants to make her his life partner.
