A 60-year-old college principal allegedly eloped and later got married to a girl student, 40 years his junior, but only at the cost of his job.

Ramdhan, who hails from Muzaffarnagar, was posted in Ratlam in Madhya Pradesh and was dismissed from the post after he allegedly eloped with Sheetal and married her a month ago, police said on Tuesday.

Still untraced, the couple, however, have sent to the police here a copy of their marriage certificate, issued in Chandigarh.

The incident came to light following a complaint lodged by the girl's parents against the professor for abducting Sheetal.

Police said they raided Ramdhan's house in the district but were unable to trace the couple.
