      VILLUPURAM: A minor Muslim girl was tonsured [got her head forcibly
      shaved] by a group of people on June 11 for falling in love with a
      Hindu boy at Kallakurichi in this district.

      According to a delayed report, the girl's father did not object to it
      and indeed favoured their marriage after the 16-year-old turned 18.

      The family of the boy, also 16, too agreed to the marriage.

      But a group of local Muslims chided her and advised to sever her
      relations with the boy. This was despite her father advising a section
      of the group not to interfere as it was their family matter.

      On June 11, when the group saw the two together, they dragged the
      girl, beat her and tonsured her head to teach her a lesson.

      The matter was informed to the district superintendent of police on
      Tuesday, with the parents of the girl filing a complaint seeking
      action against those who had tonsured their daughter's head.
