In another story from Ludhiana, a woman, identified as Rani alias Anjali, had been booked for marrying a 20-year-old boy, identified as Jagveer, despite the woman being already married before. The complaint had been registered based on Jagveer’s mother, Narinderpal Kaur.
Kaur in the FIR mentioned that the accused woman allegedly trapped her son and solemnised the marriage on November 5, 2019, when Jagveer was only 20-years-old. Later, the woman also played victim card by filing a harassment complaint against her mother-in-law just after the marriage.
The mother also became aware that Rani was already married and had not divorced her first husband. The woman had been booked for presenting false documents before the court and solemnising a second marriage without ending the first. While Jagveer was booked for marrying at the age of 20.
