The girl was recovered two days after the incident from Gayghat of Muzaffarpur by the police.
The girl’s father had filed an FIR alleging that Patel had abducted his daughter. The girl, however, deposed before a court expressing her wish to live with Sanjiv.
The Hajipur court ruled in the couple’s favour after which they returned to the village.
The family of the victim blames the girl’s family for the killing.
Chandni and Sanjiv’s love story was brutally cut short by fanatics who do such things in the name of religion, gotra, caste, status or race. But no mainstream English media or Liberal mouthpiece covered this story.
