Though the woman from Kozhikode reportedly told Kerala police, who were accompanied by personnel from the local police station on Saturday, that she stepped out on her own will to stay with her partner (also a woman), police insisted that she accompany them since they had to produce her before the magistrate.
Sources said that the women became friends via social media and developed a relationship. But the parents of the Kozhikode woman opposed their relationship after which she left her house in the first week of October and came to Chennai to stay with her partner. However, since the woman’s parents lodged a complaint, Kozhikode police reached Nungambakkam to take her with them.
When contacted, a police officer in Nungambakkam station said that the woman was not forcefully taken and she would appear before the magistrate and return to Chennai.
