Rampurhat (WB), July 18

A newly married inter-faith couple had to leave their village in West Bengal’s Birbhum district and take shelter elsewhere after being allegedly threatened by the woman’s family. The police on Sunday said it was investigating the matter.

The couple, both residents of a village in the Nalhati police station area, got married on June 25 after a love affair that went on for years.

The husband claimed that the woman’s family refused to accept the marriage and has been threatening them ever since. — PTI
