Meanwhile the son, 26-year-old Guddu, said: “I got married to Savita two months ago at an Arya Samaj Mandir in Haridwar.”
“However, we could not get the marriage certificate at that time due to lack of witnesses. I had decided to visit Haridwar again for my marriage certificate but could not do so as the lockdown was imposed,” he added.
“After returning from Haridwar, Savita stayed at a rented accommodation in Delhi. However, today I decided to bring her to my mother’s house as she was told to leave the rented accommodation due to lockdown,” said Guddu.
With the mother adamant to not let them stay there, the Sahibabad Police has asked Savita’s house owner in Delhi to let the couple stay there during the lockdown period.
