Married to a girl sitting on the doorstep due to fear of law
After four years of sexual exploitation by the lover, the unhappy girl had filed a case against the lover and family members for refusing to marry. The girl had also supported the FIR before the judicial officer in the court. Here Uttam’s relatives were watching the whole activity of the legal process and were taking information every moment. The fear of tightening the noose of the law started troubling the relatives of the young man. Only after this, he started the initiative to calm the matter late in the night and surrendered.
Four days ago, after absconding from the lover’s house, the girlfriend sat on a dharna outside his house in Maheshpur village, insisting on getting married. Meanwhile, the relatives of the young man had closed the main door, but the girl kept sitting in the cold under the open sky with the insistence of marrying her lover.
“A marriage is proposed between the boy and the girl side. I expressed my happiness and promised to do all possible help. Arranged the marriage material and got all the marriage rituals done.
