We went to the venue and counseled the child, who was already dressed up as a bride. Her parents, relatives and guests were counseled on the negative impacts of early marriage. They then called off the wedding,” police said.

Cyberabad Police Commissioner VC Sajjanar, appreciating the good work of the She Teams, requested citizens not to encourage child marriages as it was a crime. Priests, wedding invitation printers, elders and supporters of the marriage and parents of the child would be held responsible, he said.
