Sajitha, whose family had filed a missing complaint back in 2010, left her house to live with her lover, Rehman. Since he couldn't afford to rent a separate house, the duo decided to stay in a small room at his parent’s house without being noticed by anyone.

Interestingly, there were four other people in the house including Rehman's parents, sister, and nephew but were unaware of the woman’s presence. Upon his clear instructions, nobody used to go into his room.

He had created a different opening in the room through which she used to step out at night or take a bath and sit outside. He would also pack lunch from home and hand it to her before he left for work. This continued for over a decade.

In March, he went missing from his own house and his family filed a police complaint. In June, he was spotted by his brother, Basheer at a police checkpoint. Rehman revealed that he was living with Sajitha at a rented house in a nearby village, during a police inquiry.

Nenmara Police Station House Officer Deepa Kumar A revealed that the couple kept their relationship under wraps because they were afraid of a backlash from their families.

Finally, the couple was produced before a local court and Sajitha was allowed to go with Rehman.
