Indian archers Deepika Kumari and Atanu Das tied the knot in an intimate ceremony at Morabadi in Ranchi on Tuesday, following social distancing norms.

Keeping in mind the Coronavirus pandemic and lockdown social distancing rules, the couple had asked guests to come in different time slots in two batches of 50 each. While the first batch of guests left at 7 PM, the second batch entered 30 minutes later. All guests were given masks and sanitisers on arrival. Jharkhand chief minister Hemant Soren attended the wedding.

In March 2020, Deepika Kumari had posted a selfie along with Atanu Das and had captioned it, "Forget all the reasons why it won’t work, And believe the one reason why it will..."
