Girls who elope for wedding end up in brothels: Bihar DGP


PATNA—Bihar’s Director General of Police has kicked up a new controversy with his statement that many girls “who elope for marriage end up in brothels”.

“We have seen cases where girls left their homes for marriage without parents’ consent. Many of them get killed while others are forced into the flesh trade. It is parents who pay price for such decisions,” DGP SK Singhal was quoted as saying by news agency ANI.
