There is WTF news, and there is Batshit Insane WTF news. This story is an example of the latter.

The Telegraph: The Madhya Pradesh administration has begun conducting virginity and pregnancy tests on would-be brides before solemnising a “kanyadaan”, chief minister Shivraj Singh Chauhan’s pet mass-marriage scheme that helps girls from poor families tie the knot at government expense.

The decision to conduct the tests before the weddings — whose popularity has earned Chauhan the nickname mama (maternal uncle) — came after an embarrassing moment in Shahdol district when a bride developed labour pains minutes before exchange of garlands.
