Over 100 booked for protesting interfaith marriage in Gzb

Ghaziabad: Over 100 workers of Bharatiya Janata Party and other right wing outfits were booked in Ghaziabad for clashing with police and rioting over the marriage of a Hindu woman with a Muslim man, police said on Saturday.
The case was lodged on Friday midnight at Kavi Nagar police station by Sub-Inspector Dinesh Sharma under Sections 147, 148, 336, 341, 427, 353 of the Indian Penal Code and Section 7 of the Criminal Law (Amendment) Act.
The accused allegedly clashed with cops on Friday in Ghaziabad over the marriage, which they dubbed as a case of "love jihad", and staged a sit-in outside the woman's parents' house and disrupted traffic.
The woman's family had organised a wedding reception at their house. Cops said they used mild force to remove the protesters, as they were interfering with the lives of individuals.
"How could police allow people to barge into someone's house? We got a distress call and performed our duty accordingly," Superintendent of Police HN Singh said.
