Madurai: A teenaged boy along with his four friends today abducted a 17-year old girl, who had spurned his proposal to marry her, from her house near here hours before her engagement with another boy, police said.
Elavarasan and his friends, all aged 19, broke the door of the house with a boulder and dragged the girl out before taking her away in a two-wheeler at Tiruvalavayanallur, they said.
The girl had refused to marry Elavarasan. To escape from his harassment, the girl had gone to Pollachi to work in a private mill, police said.
She had come to her village for her engagement ceremony, slated for today.
A special team has been formed to rescue the girl and nab the culprits.
