Govt employee marries under-age daughter, Police not acting on complaint...

My name is Dilip Narte. I am calling from Ilahi village Ghugri block in Mandla district of Madhya Pradesh. In my village a 16 year daughter of Anganwdi worker got married on 23rd January. Villagers are against it and have reported to police and woman help line 07642-250022. But police is taking no action. Name of Groom is Dheeraj s/o Dayaram.We think a Govt employee marrying her underage daughter is a bad incident and is not good for future. Please help. For more Narte Ji is at 9407039698
