In a video, she says she wants to marry a man from a different community; moves court for protection.

#BHOPAL Former Bharatiya Janata Party MLA from Bhopal, Surender Nath Singh has accused Congress MLA Arif Masood of being involved in a ‘love jihad’ case, after his 26-year-old daughter allegedly went missing.

Singh lodged an FIR on October 17 saying that his daughter, Bharati, was missing and that she was mentally disturbed. He claimed that Bharati has been under treatment for the past four years.

Bharati, however, in a video she posted on Saturday, refuted her fathers’ claim and instead, she made some serious allegations against him and the rest of her family. She said that she is happy after getting away from them.

Bharati has also petitioned the Jabalpur High Court seeking security. She said in the petition that she was in a relationship with a 33-year-old man from another community whom she wanted to marry. She said she was working in a fitness centre and was pursuing a course in nutrition from Pune.

Reacting to Singh’s allegations, Masood said: “Surendra Nath’s daughter is like mine. I don’t want to react to his allegations. I leave this to God.”
