Police begins probe on persecution of love birds in Koraput

Koraput: After the persecution video of a couple at G. Rautpur village under Dasmantpur block became public, police here has started an investigation into the matter.

It may be mentioned that the couple in love had fled from the village on March 19, as their families were against the relationship over caste and age issue. They had returned to the village three days later as husband and wife.

However, the family of the girl had thrashed them mercilessly in front of the whole village and insulted them. Not able to bear the torture, they had attempted suicide on March 25 by hanging themselves in their house. The girl was saved as her rope snapped but the boy died.
