In a rather queer case, a lesbian couple in Odisha’s Kendrapada have alleged that their families are trying to separate them.
The couple have also said that they will instead choose to die rather separate.
Sources said that the two women have reportedly been living together for the last five months.
The two women, in their late 20s, had filed an affidavit before a local court in Kendrapara seeking permission to marry.
On January 12, both left Kendrapara to live in the state capital Bhubaneswar.
The father of one of the women has filed a complaint with the police alleging the other woman kidnapped and forced his daughter to marry her.
On the basis of his complaint, a case under Sections 365 and 295 of the Indian Penal Code has been registered.
