Following the marriage of two lovers belonging to different communities in Saharanpur in Uttar Pradesh, villagers have forced the newly married couple along with their family into exile. A resident of Biharigarh, Amit was in love with a Muslim girl named Aarzu, who got married recently. The girls’ relatives along with the police in charge of the village are accused of pressurising Amit to convert his religion. The girl’s family members have also threatened to kill the couple.

Amit was rounded up by the local police in-charge and brutally thrashed by him. The young man claimed the police in-charge not only assaulted him but also said that either he will have to convert or he will have to leave the girl. Sensing a palpable threat to their lives, the couple approached city SSP for protection.

Talking to media, Aarzu said that her in-laws family has been banished from the village by her family and other villagers. She said that villagers have threatened that the couple will be killed. Aarzu alleged that when they went to the police station seeking protection, the police instead thrashed Amit, advising him to either convert or leave his wife. She confirmed that they want to live together and sought protection.

A couple of days ago, both Amit and Aarzu got secretly married in court. When the villagers learned about their marriage, they clobbered Amit’s family members and banished them from the village and threatened to kill the two. Following this, Aarzu’s family filed a complaint against Amit. The police arrested Amit and brutally thrashed him in jail. After being released from the jail, Amit approached SSP’s office with his wife and requested for security. Amit asserted he and Aarzu have married of their own free will and not under any duress.

Villagers and girl’s relatives are apparently miffed with the fact that Aarzu, a Muslim, had married a Hindu man. Amit’s accusation about the local police in-charge assaulting and intimidated him to convert his religion points out to the police officer being in cahoots with the villagers and girl’s family members.
