Muzaffarnagar: A community panchayat has served an ultimatum to the family of a boy, who eloped with a girl from the same village, to return the girl to her parents within a day.

The decision was taken by the panchayat at Satheri village in the district last evening following a complaint by the girl`s father.

Anup Kashyap and Mina Prajapati, both from the same village, had eloped last month since their families were opposed to their relationship as they belonged to different castes.
The whereabouts of the couple are not yet known, police said, adding that the incident has led to tension between the two castes in the village.
