Bhubaneswar, May 6:
Bangalore Girl Sheetal Sharma, who was back in Odisha again to collect evidence of her marriage to the Odisha boy, has left for Bangalore and will file a complaint at Madiwala police station there.
The girl came here to collect evidence to prove that their marriage was conducted with the consent of both parties rather than pressure as her husband Amit alleged in a Bangalore family court.
She met several NGOs and media houses to collect footage, supporting images, press coverage of the marriage and would submit them in the local court and police station.
It may be noted that the couple was in a live-in relationship, but the boy wanted to opt out of the relationship to marry another girl chosen by his family in Odisha.
The girl came here, tracked him down and married him at a temple in Pipli with the help of a local NGO, the media and administration. To give her marriage legal status, she also got her marriage registered at the Pipli notary office as we reported here:
The boy, however, filed a petition against Sheetal in a family court in Bangalore accusing her of pressuring him through politicians, influential people, media, NGOs to forcefully marry him as we reported here:
