In a hilarious incident, a couple in Bareilly who decided to part ways after constant fighting decided to look for a new life partner on Facebook. Keeping their identities a secret, they began chatting for three months in the social networking site and felt they were made for each other.

Finally they decided to take their online dating to the next step and arranged a date and place to meet their secret match.

It may be the height of coincidence or just fate, when they met in a restaurant again, all hell broke loose. Their fight began to escalate causing inconvenience to the fellow customers. Eventually, a cop was called to defuse the situation where they revealed their story to everyone in the restaurant.

According to a media report, neither of the divorcees were booked under any sections and presently a Family Counselling Centre is providing them some assistance.
