KARAK: People in Gurguri area of Karak have foiled a bid of an eloping boy and girl to enter the wedlock according to their own choice.

Police said a girl and a boy, who wanted to enter the wedlock, tried to elope from the village on Wednesday, but the villagers chased them and also tried to kill them. The couple had to take refuge in Gurguri Police Station to save their lives. However, the area people encircled the police station and demanded the police to hand over the girl and boy to them.
