'Holy war' ends in matrimony

Missing boy and girl from Mysore traced in Hassan

The same term that has been used to describe the marriage between two teenagers from different religions that took place recently.

City cops, on Wednesday traced the couple -- who had been missing from the city from November 19 -- only to discover that the two - a Muslim boy and a Hindu girl - were married.
The 19-year-old Mohsin (all names changed) of Lashkar Mohalla is a student of first year BBM in a private college here. He was in love with Mekhala a resident of Datta Nagar on Mysore-Nanjangud road from the past two years. Love had blossomed while they were studying at JSS College for Arts, Commerce and Science on Mysore-Nanjangud road.

On November 19 Mohsin left home and did not return. Petrified, his father lodged a complaint with Lashkar police following day. On the same day, Mekhala also had gone missing and a complaint in this regard was lodged at K R Police station. The cops investigating into the case got a clue from a friend of Mohsin who spilt the beans. On Wednesday, K R Police traced them in Hassan. The two had already solemnised their relationship and the girl had embraced Islam.

Another case?
