Chamarajanagar: Gundlupet police have filed a first information report ( FIR) against five people of a family for child marriage.

The accused are Madappa, Doddamma Thaayi, Jawara Shetty, Mahadevamma and Mahadeva Shetty. All the accused belong to same village.

Madappa had married an underage girl from a village in Gundlupet taluk on February 19.

Following the tip off, women and child welfare department officials led by Deputy Director Basavaraju, officer Cheluvaraju and district child protection officer Vijay, local leaders and anganwadi workers went to the house of both the girl and her husband, but none of them were available.
