The saga began when Nagma and Narendra who are residents of the Katra region in Bharatpur fell in love with each other after which they decided to marry. Their relationship was not accepted by the girl’s family as the man is a Hindu, so Nagma ran away with Narendra. The couple then got married on February 22 at Arya Samaj Mandir and later returned to Bharatpur.
Reports mention that Islam, Nagma’s father had also filed a complaint against Narendra claiming that he had kidnapped his daughter and forced her into marriage. The Police then arrested the duo. Amid investigation, the authorities recorded Nagma’s statement in which she denied the allegation put forth by her father against her husband. She stated that she loved Narendra and had willingly run away with him. After this, the Court also ordered the girl to stay with Narendra considering that the duo was adults and could take their own decisions.
According to the reports, Nagma’s family got furious over the Court’s decision and since then has been issuing death threats to the couple. After the case and taking into account the threats being issued by father Islam, Narendra and Nagma shifted to Mathura and stayed there for around two months during which Nagma got pregnant.
The couple eventually returned to Bharatpur and began living in a leased house in Bharatpur’s Ranjit Nagar. On Thursday, Islam attempted to crush his daughter and son-in-law to death as the duo was on their way to the hospital for Nagma’s routine check-up. The crowd gathered and the police also reached the spot. The father had by then fled from the locality.
The Police later took both the victims to the Police Station and Beena Mahawar, Additional District Magistrate Bharatpur confirmed that action under section 122 CrPC is already underway at the Court. “We’ve asked the SP and concerned SHO to look into the case and work for the couple’s safety. Necessary action will be taken”, she said.
