It is a love story straight out of Bollywood potboilers. In the backdrop of Chambal ravines, a policeman's daughter married a notorious dacoit in the presence of her father and 24 other policemen. The wedding took place on November 24 at Rajakhera in Dholpur, with the policemen standing guard to ensure that the dacoit does not flee during the ceremony.
The girl, Mona, was being harassed by a dacoit in Dholpur and her family approached another dacoit, Shiv Dutt, to 'fix' the miscreant. It turned out that Dutt and the 'offending' dacoit were friends and after his intervention, the harassment stopped altogether.
The girl, convinced to have found her knight in shining armour, fell for Dutt, who, too, reciprocated and the couple decided to tie the knot.
The girl's father, Roop Singh, Head Constable in Rajasthan's Armed Constabulary and posted in Delhi, resisted, but with the couple adamant he finally gave in.
Dutt, who is in police custody in Bharatpur's Sevar jail, has over 15 cases of murder, abduction, rape and extortion lodged against him across Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh and Madhya Pradesh. While he was in jail, love blossomed between the two as Dutt is said to have kept in touch with Mona through regular phone calls.
Though Dutt got permission to leave the jail for the wedding, keeping in view his track record, a local court asked for police cover during the ceremony. Soon after his marriage, Dutt was escorted back to the jail.
