Kerala Congress MLA KS Sabarinathan representing Aruvikkara constituency tied the knot with Thiruvananthapuram sub-collector Divya S Iyer at the Kumarakovil temple in Kanyakumari district on Friday, reported.

The 33-year-old MLA, son of late Congress legislator and former Assembly Speaker G Karthikeyan, won from Aruvikkara in the by-election in 2015 and retained the seat in the 2016 assembly election as well. Divya, 32, is a graduate in medicine from CMC, Vellore. She got into Indian Administrative Services or IAS in 2013. She has previously worked as assistant collector at Kottayam before moving to her home district of Thiruvananthapuram.

Sabrinathan had announced the wedding in May on Facebook following which the couple was inundated with greetings.

        Congratulations. But doctors should not be allowed to do anything other than healing the sick. There is a shortage of doctors inn the country. Waste of a talent and a seat in the medical school.
