When people say truth is stranger than fiction, it doesn’t sound very convincing. But this real-life incident from Kerala is proof that the saying is quite true. In February 2010, an 18-year-old woman named Sajitha went missing from Ayalur village in Palakkad.
For 11 years, her parents tried to find her but to no avail. According to The Indian Express, she has now been found living just 500 meters away with her lover Alinchuvattil Rahman. More surprising is the fact that the man’s parents who live in the same house have been unaware of the same.
Nenmara Police Station House Officer Deepa Kumar A said, “Nobody knew about their affair. In any elopement, both persons go missing.”
The whole case started unraveling 3 months ago when Rahman himself was reported missing by his family. Earlier this week, his elder brother Basheer spotted him out of the blue and it was discovered that the couple was staying in another village.

A local court has ruled that the couple can stay together. What do you think of this bizarre happening? Tell us.
