Kundapur: Vidyashree (22) from Bavaladi in Bijoor had gone missing from her mother’s house since Jan 29.
She had been given in marriage to Santosh Shetty of Ardi in Albadi two years ago. She had come to stay with her mother some time ago.
On Jan 29, she had said that she was going to her husband’s house but she had neither gone there nor returned to her mother.
Santosh Shetty filed a complaint in the Byndoor police station about her having gone missing. Upset over her disappearance, her mother Parvati took the extreme step of jumping into a nearby river on Sunday evening.
In the meantime, it came to light that much before she got married, she was in love with Ravi Manju Shetty (24) of Nadavarakeri in Murudeshwar in Uttar Kannada. The police swung into action and tracked both of them in Bengaluru.
On Monday they were brought to the Byndoor police station and questioned her in the presence of her husband and relatives. She was stuck to her intention of living with Ravi by divorcing her husband.
