Two brothers landed in prison here on Saturday for allegedly attempting to force a minor girl in Podanur into marriage.

Police said that the girl, daughter of M Gomathi, was from Vellalore. A youth from the same locality, S Siva (19) and his 17-year-old brother met Gomathi and asked her to give her daughter in marriage to the elder of the siblings. When Gomathi rejected their request, the brothers abused and threatened her.

Based on a complaint from Gomathi, Podanur police registered a case under Section 4 of TN Prohibition of Women Harassment Act and 506 (i) and arrested them.
