VILLUPURAM: An assistant professor and six of his relatives are facing a police case for allegedly attacking a nursing college student, when she asked him to marry her as the two were in a relationship.

According to police, the assistant professor Ebel John Edward(34) of Pathur village near Ulundurpet and his relative Gowsaliya (20) of the same village, studying in a private paramedical college at Ulundurpet, fell in love with each other.

Edward promised to marry her and took her on a tour to Tiruchy, Kanniyakumari and Chennai and had a physical relationship with her.

Two weeks ago, Gowsaliya learnt that Edward’s parents were arranging a marriage for him with another girl. She questioned him on this, but he had not replied properly. On Wednesday evening, she went to his house to inform his parents about their  affair.

There, Edward, his brothers Sundar(25) and Prille(30) and relatives Ruth(65), Jothi(35), Anbu(50) and another Edward(42) abused Gowsaliya and some among them slapped her, before issuing a death threat to her.

Gowsaliya went to the Ulundurpet all-woman police station and lodged a complaint against Edward and his six relatives.
