VILLUPURAM: After being deserted by her husband, a 22-year-old graduate remarried the man in the presence of officers at the Ulundurpet All Women Police Station (AWPS) on Friday evening.
According to sources, Justin (26), a Christian youth of Sathanur village near Ulundurpet, was working as a railway gatekeeper at Poovanur village near Virudhachalam and was in love with Deepa, a Hindu woman, for the past four years. The relationship started as Deepa used to cross the railway gate everyday, on her way to college.
As Deepa started forcing Justin to marry her for the past two months, he secretly married her two weeks ago at a Hindu temple in the presence of his friends. The duo managed to convince Deepa’s parents and were living in the bride’s home. Four days ago, Justin asked Deepa to remove her mangalsutra as he said he had obtained his parents’ permission to marry her in their parish church. But Justin, who went to his parent’s home to arrange for the marriage, did not return. Two days ago, Deepa came to know that Justin’s parents were arranging another marriage for him with a girl from their community.
Following this, Deepa, and her parents approached the Ulundurpet AWPS on Thursday. The officers, after providing counselling to Justin and his parents, arranged their remarriage in the presence of both the parents.
