Hyderabad: An 18-year-old girl was attacked with a blade by her husband’s elder brother for marrying a Muslim in Saifabad early on Sunday. She suffered minor injuries on her neck.
The girl, Nagamani, who asks for alms in Karmanghat, came in contact with Suleman, 19, an autorickshaw driver from Hafeez Baba Nagar, Kanchanbagh.
“The girl claims that they got married during Ramzan but there is no proof,” said Madannapet sub inspector V. Prasad.
On Sunday morning, the couple went to have tea in Saidabad.
