Same sex couple splits July 5, 2007

The love story of the same-sex couple, who got married against the wishes of
their parents, today took a sad turn when one of them attempted suicide at the
Sadar police station here. The couple, Baljit Kaur (21) of Hassanpur Kalan and
Rajwinder Kaur (20) of Hassanpur Khurd, were brought to the police station by
panchayat members of their respective villages after Rajwinder allegedly refused
to stay with Baljit. Both girls were to be produced before the sub-divisional
magistrate (SDM), Batala, Sandeep Rishi to record their statements. Baljit
slit the veins of her left hand at the police station while Rajwinder recorded
her statement before the police. The former was taken to the local civil
hospital where after a medical examination, she was arrested under Sections 309,
511 and 506 of the IPC for attempting suicide. Rajwinder told the SDM that
Baljit married her with the promise that she would send her abroad. She alleged
that Baljit was having similar relations with
certain girls and was forcing her into their company. Later, talking to
mediapersons, Rajwinder alleged that Baljit was a drug addict and was having
relations with certain boys. She did not give up her habits even after my
repeated requests. She said Baljit cheated her by not keeping her matrimonial
promise to send her abroad and now she did not want to live with her any more.
Parents of Rajwinder had brought her back with them following which Baljit
complained to the police. Baljit claims to be the “husband” of Rajwinder. She
said they got married at the Vaishno Devi shrine in Jammu and Kashmir on June 15
