Aligarh: A Muslim man who had come here from Chandigarh with a local woman to tie an interfaith nuptial knot in the court was arrested on charges of forcibly detaining her, police said on Friday.

The man was arrested by the Aligarh's Civil Line police from the district court premises on Thursday, while the woman too was whisked away by sleuths.
