Angul: In a strange turn of events, a girl was locked up for more than 10 hours by her lover after she reportedly asked him to stay true to his words and marry her.

These events unfolded on Saturday at the Balaram Prasad village under NALCO police limits of Angul district.

As per sources, one Chakradhar Mahapatra and Ambuti Dehury had been in a relationship for over a decade. However, since things turned sour when Chakradhar refused to marry Ambuti and was about to marry someone else.

As a last resort, on Saturday Ambuti reached Chakradhar’s workplace at Rajiv Gandhi Seva Kendra to convince him for marriage. Infuriated, Chakradhar snatched her phone and locked the poor girl inside the office and fled. She kept shouting for help but it all fell on deaf ears.

At about 7 pm last night a few youths heard her cries for help and immediately informed the Sarpanch and the local police. The girl was rescued and the police launched a manhunt for the accused.
