Hooghly, Aug 10: A minor school girl proposes, but the administration disposes.

Police finally prevented her from wedding her minor boy friend.

A school girl of class nine, residing in Chandannagore had an affair with a boy of Bhadreswar. They jointly decided to marry without thinking what could be its result. The girl intimated everything to her mother. The girl’s parents, feeling her mentality and to avoid any unwanted incident, agreed at her proposal. The marriage was fixed on Monday in a Kali-temple under the knowledge of the girl’s parents.
The love-birds decided to marry on Monday in a temple. Acting on a tip-off, the members of Child-line immediately contacted the SDO, Chandannagore and informed her in details.
