A couple in Uttar Pradesh, which had gone their separate ways following endless fights in their relationship, took to Facebook to find new love. However, their attempt at getting a new companion was short-lived as they unintentionally hooked up with each other, The Times of India reported. 

While cops told TOI that the chances of such coincidence is "very, very negligible" in reality, one policeman was of the opinion that "such things happen when your luck is bad".

The Bareilly couple had changed their identities on Facebook to hook up "with someone better".

Following months of browsing on social media, the man found someone "very interesting" and the woman found someone with an "exciting prospect". The duo, unaware of each other's real identities, started talking on Facebook and then fixed a date to meet at a restaurant.

When the date of meeting arrived, the two were shocked to find out that they had been talking to each other all this while. 

The TOI report further states, "Needless to say , an argument broke out immediately , much to the amusement of guests and staffers at the eatery. It soon escalated into something the onlookers could not handle. Cops were called in to intervene. However, cops who had rushed in to mollify the two realised there was actually no sections the fighting duo could be booked under. So they did the next best thing and sent the couple for yet another round of counselling at the Family Counselling Centre."
