A schoolgirl in Hyderabad in glittering red poses with an elderly man in disturbing wedding photographs that were handed over to the police on Wednesday.
The bride is 16 and the groom - a 65-year-old sheikh from Oman, reports NDTV.
The girl’s parents went to the police on Wednesday alleging that she was married off three months ago for Rs. 5 lakh, which was paid to an aunt, and taken to Oman without their consent.
“If you don’t save me and take me from here, I will die...” the girl has reportedly said in phone messages to her parents from Muscat.
The teen’s mother, pleading for help to bring her back, has accused her sister-in-law and her husband of facilitating the illegal marriage for money..
