At her swayamvara, Prithviraj devised a plan to elope with her.
On the day of the ceremony, Samyukta walked with the garland, ignoring her waiting suitors and garlanded Prithviraj's statue, declaring him her husband.
Prithviraj, who was hiding behind the statue, caught Samyukta in his arms, set her on his horse, and whisked her away.
