A 22-year-old Bangladeshi woman swam across the border to marry her boyfriend from India, reported India Today.
She braved the wild forests of the Sunderbans, swam for an hour and entered India to unite with the love of her life, the report added.
“The Bangladeshi woman, identified as Krishna Mandal, met Abhik Mandal on Facebook and fell in love. As Krishna did not have a passport, she chose to cross the border illegally.”
Quoting police sources the report added: “Krishna first entered the Sundarbans, which is known for its Royal Bengal Tigers. She then swam for about an hour in the river to reach her destination.”
Three days ago, Krishna got married to Abhik at Kalighat Temple in Kolkata. However, she was arrested on Monday for illegally entering the country.
Sources said that Krishna may be handed over to the Bangladesh High Commission.
