The police later summoned the both families to the police station and counseled them. “They later agreed for marriage,” Mishra said.

The girl and youth, however, insisted that their marriage must be organized in presence of police as their parents might deny again.

The police officials decided to arrange the wedding at a temple situated in police station premises. Local MLA Vijay Raghvendra Singh was also invited to the wedding. The couple entered into wedlock in police officials and family members’ presence.
