A young couple in Belapunranga village in Indonesia has been forced to marry in a traditional ceremony after being caught alone at a fruit farm by local residents, reported The Star (Malaysia).

The couple, identified as Manai, 20, and Sugiani, 19, were married in the presence of a penghulu (Muslim wedding official), with village officials and police personnel from Parangloe subdistrict as witnesses.

The pair were found to be alone on the rambutan farm on Jan 6 and had since become a target of intimidation by local residents.

Afterwards, Sugiani's family confronted Manai's family, accusing the latter of violating the customary law called siri.

Police officials subsequently stepped in to defuse tensions between the two families, who had nearly clashed with one another.

Through mediation assisted by police and village officials, the two families decided to wed Manai and Sugiani.

"We have a problem-solving program, which aims to create order in society through persuasive and early conflict-prevention approaches," Parangloe police chief Abdul Majid said.
