A newly-wed couple, on Sunday, sought police security fearing that they might be killed as they had married against their parents' wishes.
The couple told media personnel at Dadri that they had eloped and had a court marriage on May 2 at Allahabad. On August 9, they returned and started their conjugal life.
The woman's parents, after learning about their return, came to their place to take her back.
However, when she refused, her father in a fit of rage fired some shots in the air during which one of the bullets hit her mother-in-law. She was rushed to a hospital where she is undergoing treatment.
Meanwhile, police said they are investigating the matter and the couple will be provided security.
