“Dalit girl Komal Khatik had a love marriage in Aliganj with Brahmin boy Karan Goswami who lived in the nearby locality on 20th April 2022 with the consent of her mother and her maternal uncle who lives in Aliganj. Both of them were in love with each other for the last year. While Karan Goswami’s family members were ready for this marriage, Komal Khatik’s brother was against it”, reported OpIndia.
The 22-year-old girl was in love with her neighborhood Brahmin boy since last year and on April 20, she married him with the consent of his family.
