It was like the last scene from a romantic movie that played out at Cochin International Airport on Tuesday. Sadly this time, the boy and girl did not end up together. 

A man made a desperate attempt to meet his girlfriend before she boarded a flight to Dubai around 2 am on Tuesday. Her parents were reportedly sending her away because of their relationship. The man, along with two other friends, were standing in the parking area of the airport when ground staff noticed as one of the men tried to pull on a purdah. The airport staff immediately notified CISF personnel.

Suspicious of the trio’s behavior, CISF personnel detained and questioned them. “All three of them were caught by CISF and handed over to police,” an airport official told TNM.

The group then revealed that one of the men was trying to see his girlfriend, who was on a flight to Dubai because of their relationship. They provided the woman’s details, including her name and flight information to CISF officials to prove that they were not lying.

CIAL officials soon identified the woman and spoke to her parents, who verified the man’s story. According to reports, the parents confirmed that they knew that man and that their daughter was being sent to Dubai because of her relationship with the man.
