Mbwa aoa binti wa miaka 18

VIP: The bride's father  carries Sheru in his friend's car on the wedding day
An 18-year-old Indian girl has married a stray dog as part of a tribal ritual designed to ward off an evil spell.

Mangli Munda, from a remote village in the eastern Indian state of Jharkhand, wed the canine in a lavish ceremony.

The wedding was hastily organised by village elders after a local guru led Mangli's parents to believe that the teenager possessed ill-luck and that marrying a man would bring destruction to the family and her community.

The baffled dog, Sheru, a stray found by the girl's father, was brought to the wedding in a chauffeur driven car and welcomed by revellers.

Mangli, who has not been to school, said she was not happy to wed a dog, but insisted that it will help change her fortunes.

 The hesitant bride said: 'I am marrying a dog because the village elders believe that my evil spell will be passed on to the dog.

'After that is done, the man I will marry will have a long life.'
