Love jihad allegation surfaces as parents seek police action after girl goes missing in Gadag
Gadag: A week after their daughter went missing, the parents of a 19-year-old girl in Gadag district of Karnataka have alleged that it is a case of ‘love jihad’ and filed a police complaint against 30-year-old Ameer Kukanuru at Betageri police station.
The parents of the girl alleged that though they filed a complaint a week ago, the police were not making an honest attempt to find their daughter.
The parents claim that the Betageri police are demanding that the parents hire a car to enable them to search for the missing girl.
The parents asserted that they are poor and unable to arrange transport for the police.
Sources said that the parents had also attempted suicide after the incident.
