Meerut: A woman who married a Meerut businessman confessed before him that she loved another man and pleaded him to treat her like a sister, which he agreed. The newly-wed woman has now sought police protection against threats from her father who is opposed to her love affair, police said Thursday.
Superintendent of Police (City), Meerut, Prabal Pratap Singh confirmed receiving a request for protection made by the woman identified as Aarti.
"We are looking into a complaint that she received threats from her father," he said, adding that they would take action, if needed.
Aarti`s father Anil Tyagi is a sub-inspector in Uttarakhand.
Aarti wed Nitish Tyagi, a resident of Devlok Colony in Meerut May 6, but told him that she had secretly married her lover Vineet earlier.
She said she was forced into the wedding after her elder sister, who was originally supposed to marry Nitish, eloped with her lover.
Nitish`s father, a real estate developer, said his family had accepted Aarti as a daughter. "Her wish to formalise her marriage with Vineet would be fulfilled," he said.
Aarti told police that her father threatened her and said he would implicate Nitish`s family in a dowry case.
