In her complaint, the woman stated that she is a divorcee and her foster brother was looking for a suitable match for her. On Tuesday, she along with her foster brother, his friend Dharminder and two others went to Kokri village meet a prospective groom. On their way back to Sherpur Kalan, her foster brother went away for a few minutes to take a phone call.
