The consent of the family or the community or the clan is not necessary once the two adult individuals agree to enter into a wedlock, said the three judge bench comprising Chief Justice Dipak Misra and Justices AM Khanwilkar and DY Chandrachud while holding that any attempt by Khap Panchayats or any other assembly to scuttle or prevent two consenting adults from marrying is absolutely “illegal”.

"When two adults consensually choose each other as life partners, it is a manifestation of their choice which is recognized under Articles 19 and 21 of the Constitution", held the Court

Indeed a complex narration of facts by you. Please go ahead and file a writ of Habeas Corpus against the parents- the Court would direct the parents to produce rhe daughter before rhe Court- thats the only legal recourse that you would have.
