The couple met through friends and the friendship soon blossomed in love. He proposed to her and since he knew that his parents wouldn't allow a marriage, he decided to elope with her.
Strangely, it was the girl's parents, who without considering the boy's age helped the couple go to Chennai, and even arranged their marriage on Christmas day. Meanwhile, the boy's anxious parents searched for him, and found that he had married, and was living in his in-laws' house in Basavanagar.
After counseling both the parties, the police called the marriage off, since he is a minor. "We have taken undertaking from both the boy and his in-laws that they won't bother each other until he attains the marriageable age," said a sub-inspector who is looking into the case.
