‷Sanjoy Sachdev helped scores of Indian couples marry across cultural lines, and against family wishes – but police are asking if he was a fraud.‴

‷It was a world-famous charity dedicated to rescuing star-crossed Indian lovers. For the past nine years, using a network of secret safe-houses across India, Love Commandos sheltered thousands of young people seeking to marry outside their caste, religion or clan – and who feared their families might kill them for it.‴

‷Those who followed and promoted Love Commandos for nearly a decade are shocked and confused. “In 10 years they have saved thousands of couples,” says Miriam Lyons, a British director who filmed the organisation on and off for five years. “I am in admiration for their work. It is extraordinary what they do.”

‷Couples who have been assisted by Love Commandos are struggling to process the allegations against the organisation. “Nobody ever asked me for any money,” says Vijay Kumar, who was staying at the shelter until two days before Sachdev’s arrest. “Whatever I paid, I paid voluntarily to cover the expenses for my marriage.”‴

‷Kumar, 22, is now in hiding with his wife in a neighbouring state. Her family is looking for the pair. Without Sachdev, they would never have been able to marry, Kumar says. “Whatever life I have now is a gift from him.”

❝Love Commandos being framed, claims son of absconding office bearer❞

LoveCommandos.org is Under Maintenance

‷The son of NGO Love Commandos’ chief coordinator on Thursday claimed that the organisation was being framed in a case of harassing couples.‴

‷“This is the first time such allegations have surfaced. Since 2010, we have helped over 40,000 couples and have always been praised,” said Manav, Malhotra’s 18-year-old son. “We have submitted all evidence to the police. We read reports of them alleging that dogs were unleashed on them. We have submitted videos and photographs of the same girls playing with the dogs.”‴

‷“They have accused us of confining them. We have submitted photographs of the couples partying just days before they lodged the complaint. We have also not charged a penny from them and depend on donations. We will present all our evidence in court,” he said.‴
