Love they say trumps all- even the strict lockdown in place in the city. A case of two young lovers eloping has raised questions on the efficacy of the strict lockdown in place in the city.
A case of kidnapping has been registered against a youth in the Odhav police station after he eloped with his lover who happens to be a minor. The girl identified as one Monali (name changed) is a resident of Singharva area in Odhav and had gone missing a week ago.
The girl had gone to sleep with her mother but was found missing the next morning. After extensive search revealed nothing, the parents approached the Odhav police station. Investigations revealed that the girl was in love with a youth named Arun Solanki who lived in the same area. The two had been in a relationship for sometime and were also in touch with each other via mobile phone. Cops believe that Monali eloped with Solanki since the latter could not be found at his home.
After being unable to trace the couple, the cops registered a case of kidnapping against the youth as the girl is a minor.
