Kendrapara: A same sex marriage between two girls in Kendrapara district today courted controversy with one of the girl’s fathers lodging an FIR at Pattamundai police station alleging that her daughter was forced and lured to get married.

Sabitri Parida resident of Mahakalpada area in Kendrapara district and Monalisa Nayak from Pattamundai of the same district were studying in same class and later did job in one company in Cuttack.

Both were also staying together in a single room. However, decided to live together and moved to a local court and executed the agreement of marriage recently.

Now, the father of Monalisa lodged a police complaint at the Pattamundai police station alleging that Sabitri had married to her daughter by luring her.

In September last year, the Supreme Court had abolished section 377 and decriminalised same sex relationship.
