The revenue officials in coordination with the staff of the Women and Child Development Agency foiled an attempt by an old woman to perform the marriage of her minor granddaughter with an underage youth at Lingagiri village in Huzurnagar mandal on Thursday. The minor girl (14) was staying at her grandmother's house ever since her father died a few years ago, sources added. After ascertaining the facts, the officials brought Kotamma and her relatives and counselled them.
