A youth named Laltu Hansda of Jamada area under Rupsa police limits had been to Tuligadia for farm work 3 years ago. He had developed one-sided love for this girl and decided to propose her. On Wednesday morning,he went to the girl’s house with a box of chocolates and proposed her to marry him. But the girl refused his proposal.Unable to take a ‘no’ for an answer, the boy tried to convince her and her mother but in vain. Though the girl asked him to leave, he did not budge from her house. When a hullabaloo was created, the villagers took the boy and tied him to a tree.After that, the girl and her mother were seen slapping him with chappals in their hands, and the boy seemed to be silently bearing the whole torture.The boy was later handed over to the Khaira police.
