"We are enquiring whether the girls are minor or major... as per tribal traditions, man used to follow 'nata pratha'
(keeping relations with more than one woman) and may marry more than one. A constable has been sent to the village to verify their documents," the officer said on condition of anonymity.

We have to ensure that there is no crime". Udaipur Collector Vikas Sitaram Bhale said, "The Hindu Marriage Act might not be applied in the case of tribal community.I cannot comment right away, wait for day or two to ascertain the case".
