"On Sunday evening, both the girls contacted Harendra Pal Singht, SHO Jamuna Paar police station, and sought his help for their marriage. They said they were facing opposition from family members," Deputy Superintendent of Police Rakesh Kumar told reporters.
"Both the girls were counselled to change their decision by police as well as by their family members, but, at present, they appear adamant," he said.
