Hisar, Jun 25 (PTI) Over a dozen assailants allegedly attacked one Kuldeep Dhanak at his residence on Kaimri road here last night and injured him seriously and kidnapped his wife Shalu Sharma. The complainant, a Dalit youth, alleged that the kin of his wife had attacked him and abducted his wife, police said here. Police even conducted raids at various places to recover Shalu but in vain. Shalu had married Kuldeep Dhanak against the wishes of her family in the month of March this year. Both actually belonged to Ratia town in Fatehabad district and fell in love.
When the parents of the girl opposed their proposal of marriage, they ran away and married in the court and sought protection from the police. A gunman was provided to the newly-wedded couple and they shifted to Fatehabad. After some days they returned the police security and shifted to Hisar. Kuldeep Dhanak, a labourer, who is admitted in Civil Hospital in Hisar told newsmen that his father-in-law Purushottam Lal and brother-in-law Dhiraj Sharma led about a dozen miscreants with covered faces, who allegedly attacked him and abducted Shalu in a jeep. "I was being threatened and was under pressure to break the wedlock," he alleged.
