VARANASI: Eloping with a minor girl proved costly to a Dalit youth of Koirajpur village in Baragaon police station area as his own family got their head tonsured and paraded them in the village when they returned home after four days of elopement on Sunday.
The police have arrested four persons, including the youth and his brother, in this connection.
According to reports, one Raju (20) eloped with a 14-year-old girl from the village on July 30.
They returned home on Sunday afternoon. When the girl’s father, a daily wager, went to Raju’s house, he was allegedly thrashed by the youth’s family members.
Later, family members of the youth gathered at the spot, shaved the couple’s heads and paraded them in the Dalit basti of the village.
