Bolangir: Residents of Bolangir town on Tuesday witnessed a triumph of love when the marriage between a Swadhar Greh inmate and her boyfriend who had gone to jail for her was solemnised.
Reportedly, the girl had eloped with the youth in September 2016 following which her parents had lodged a police complaint as she was a minor then.
Based on the complaint the youth had been arrested and as the girl's family members denied accepting her, she had been sent to the Swadhar Greh.
It was after the girl attaining marriageable age recently, authorities of the Swadhar Greh performed duties of her guardian and gave her hand to the youth as per Hindu rituals.
The Swadhar Greh authorities had also issued an invitation card asking all to attend the marriage of Kalyani (Mita) with Dinesh (Chamaru), second son of Banka Kuanr of Ankriapadar village, and shower their blessings upon the newly wed.
