UP village tense over Hindu-Muslim marriage

Tension prevailed at Pichkaura village in Baghpat, after a Hindu girl appeared before a local court claiming that she had married a Muslim youth. Police had to escort Komal (22), who was accompanied by her husband Salman (24), to a safe place, as members of Hindu outfits and locals gathered outside the court protesting the marriage on Monday. Now, members of RSS affiliate, Hindu Jagaran Manch, have decided to try to convince the girl to return to her family and also hold a mahapanchayat in this regard. Meanwhile, fearing attack by the girl’s family and locals, Salman’s family has fled the village. Salman’s father Sabbir Ali and his four uncles, along with their family members, left the village on Tuesday morning. In all, 24 members of these families have left.
