Manikandan of Kandhal in Udhagamandalam in Nilgiris district and Wajida of Ooty-Mysore Road were in love for the last four years and when they decided to get married, the girl’s family refused to let their daughter, a Muslim, marry a Hindu man, they said.

However, the couple got married at a temple in Podanur near here as per Hindu custom, they said.

Fearing for their lives, both came to the office of Commissioner of Police here and submitted a petition seeking protection, police said.
