Mumbai, Jan 21 (UNI) It was a sweet end to a love story gone sour because of an inter-community marriage and alleged meddling of the girl's parents as the Bombay High Court today reunited a Gujarati girl with her husband, belonging to a minority community.
Twent-ythree-year-old Chaitali from Thane had eloped with her fiance Naeem Ansari on May 28, 2007. She had adopted Islam on May 30 and got married with Naeem on the same day. After a few days, policemen from Raper police station in Gujarat knocked on doors of Naeem and informed his family members that a FIR had been filed there against Chaitali.
Raper police had taken Chaitali to Raper and produced her before a local court for alleged offence of theft on a complaint filed by her grandmother staying there.
The local court had sent her to judicial custody but her father managed to obtain bail and got her released from prison.
Naeem had moved the high court after Chaitali was detained by her family members and sought her to be produced before the court.
During the course of hearing, she had revealed her willingness to join her husband. But, instead of directly handing her over to Naeem, to allow her to take final decision, the judges had sent her to Asha Sadan in Dongri.
After three days when Chaitali was produced in court today, she reiterated her decision to join her husband. Therefore, the court allowed her to be united with her husband.
