Gotra is irrelevant if the relationship itself falls within the degree of prohibited relationships. The marriage is illegal. Hence, there is no question of it being registered. Let your friend consult a local lawyer personally upon the payment of his consultancy fee to ascertain if he is entitled to any assistance by law.

Hi,
 Your friend and his girl are in a Sapinda relationship of marriage so it is  void /not valid as per law. So registration of your marriage can not be done.  In case they are living as husband and wife  after a religious ceremony of marriage before a  priest, and wish to continue they will have to live  without a legally valid marriage. There are In our country in few  caste this type of marriage are existing for example , tamilnadu, kerala, and some part of Andhra Pradesh,  these marriages are blessed with religious sanctions, so family or society  do not make an issue. Gotra is not a reason for prohibited relationship of marriage. Your friend needs to approach the police and should seek their protection and help to avoid the family 's wrath and unwanted incidents.
