India: Lesbian marriage in Bengaluru leaves police in a fix

At a time when the Indian society has just begun to come to terms withhomosexuality, case of an alleged lesbian wedding in Bengaluru has become a point of discussion .

It is believed that a 25-year-old woman married another 21-year-old woman at a temple in Koramangala.

The parents of one of the girls had filed a missing complaint only to later find out that their daughter was not only in a lesbian relationship , she had also married another woman at a temple in the city.

The 21-year-old girl is allegedly now being counselled by the Vanita Sahaya Vani, the women's grievance cell of the police. The marriage is not legal after Supreme Court decriminalised section 377 in 2013. 

Based on the missing complaint filed by the younger woman's family, the police initiated a search operation and traced them to an apartment in Koramangala.

The couple tried to seek help of an NGO to fight their case and also to let their family and police know that they are happy together and as adults have taken their own decisions. Read more via India Today
