Preliminary information suggests that family issues may have triggered this abduction attempt. The victim expressed her strong opposition to child marriage, stating, "I don't want to live with him. Moreover, the person I am married to is already having an affair with someone else. I have all the evidence on my phone, which my parents have taken away." 

During negotiations at the police station, the young woman refused to accompany her parents and accused that the man she was married to was involved in an extramarital affair. She stressed the importance of her phone, which contains evidence of these claims. Following a detailed account of the background of the incident, she refused to go back with her parents. The police intervened in the issue and the girl has been safely accompanied back to the hostel.
