A 23-year-old Dalit woman staged a sit-in protest in front of the locked house of her lover, whom, she alleged, married her a year ago, but deserted her after his parents objected to it, at Anna Nagar here on Friday.

P Deivathai, a resident of RV Mill Road near Rasipuram in Namakkal district, staged the protest in front of M Subash’s (23) house. However, the man’s family left the house after locking it.

Deivathai claimed that Subash, also a Dalit, and she fell in love during their college days and got married at a temple in Namagiripet a year ago. However, when Subash’s parents objected to the marriage, he succumbed to their pressure and left her, she alleged.

“We were in love since 2011. He married me a year ago, but did not get it registered saying it might create trouble for his father. Later, he told me to wait till his sister’s marriage, but recently he said that his parents were not ready to accept me as I belonged to a different community,” said Deivathai, who is a BEd student.

“I petitioned the Collector on Monday. But no action has been taken against Subash’s parents,” she said.

Meanwhile, Namagiripet police inspector P Arokiaraj said if she lodged a complaint, they would initiate action as per law.
