Puttur: Yet Again! Officials Stall Marriage of Underage Girl at Olamogaru

Puttur: Officials of the child welfare department stalled yet another child marriage that was to take place in Mani in Bantwal taluk earlier this week.

A 15-year-old girl from Bolladi in Olamogru village in the taluk had been engaged to be married to a young man from Uppinangady. Both the families were making arrangements to hold the marriage to be held in an auditorium near Mani.

The child development project officer (CDPO) from Puttur received a tip-off about the illegal marriage. The officials from the department traced the birth records from a nearby school and decided to intervene.

They visited the house of the girl and convinced them of the legal consequences and prevented the marriage from taking place.

Again and again!
