Reports said that Rinku aka Jaswant, a native of Rampura Simri in Dhauraura locality of Lakhimpur Kheri was in love with one Rekha, a resident of the same area.
As the families were opposed to their affair so they eloped few days back on which the girl’s parents lodged a case of kidnapping of Rekha and accused Rinku.
According to Station House Officer Mahendra Kumar Tripathi, they traced the locality of Rinku and Rekha in Gurugram in Haryana so a police team was dispatched to recover them.
