A man was allegedly brutally assaulted by his wife’s parents on the court premises in Rewari district on Wednesday. The girl’s family also allegedly tried to abduct the man,Balwan,but could not do so as onlookers overpowered them.

Following the incident,the girl’s brother Subhash and relatives — Praveen,Rajkumar — and their driver Narender were arrested on charges of abduction and assault.

According to the police,Balwan,based in Rajasthan’s Jhunjhunu,had fallen in love with Hanumangarh resident Lilawati. Since both belonged to same caste,their families were against the relationship. However,the couple eloped and got married in Rewari on September 20.

On Wednesday,Balwan approached the court seeking protection for him and Lilawati. However,his petition was dismissed.

“Balwan was waiting for his lawyer when Lilawati’s relatives attacked him. According to Balwan,over five people attacked him. While a few have been arrested,the rest will also be nabbed soon,” Sub-Inspector Jagdish Kumar said.
