According to information from the women cell, Vaibhav and the victim got married in 2012 after a love affair. The police said the court provided them protection as their parents were against their marriage.

Following the court orders, we have booked Vaibhav and his parents. Now, we will investigate the matter”.

The police have registered a case under Sections 376, 498-A, 406, 506 and 34 of the IPC in this regard. No arrest has been made so far.
