A case has been registered against eight people in this regard and three have been arrested so far, the Station House Officer said.

 

The Muslim woman, an orphan, lived with her grandmother while the man, a 28-year-old Hindu labourer, stayed alone, according to police.

 

The two had been in a relationship for a long time and got married at a temple on Monday morning, they said. After the woman’s family found about it, they forcibly took her away from her husband’s house while he was at work, they added.

 

She has named her uncle and others in the complaint, Additional Superintendent of Police Avdhesh Singh said.
