Delhi HC directs Delhi Police to provide protection to interfaith couple

-

New Delhi, Jul 2 (ILNS) The Delhi High Court today granted protection to an interfaith couple from Bihar, apprehending threat to their life from the family members and other relatives of the girl.

A Vacation Bench led by Justice Subramonium Prasad issued notice to the Delhi Government and the concerned Station House Officer, and directed the said SHO to ensure that adequate protection and safety is given to the couple.

The matter would now be heard on July 26. The police protection shall continue till then. 

The petition was filed by an 18 year-old Hindu girl and a 30 year-old Muslim boy, who were neighbours at their native village in Bihar.

The plea contended that due to religious differences, the family members of the couple were not in favour of their marriage. It stated that the couple left their native place on June 11 and reached Delhi to get married here. It further stated that on June 21, the couple applied for solemnisation of their marriage before Marriage Registrar, Kalkaji, Delhi; and that the marriage has been scheduled for July 5.

The plea alleged that family members of the girl were threatening the couple of dire consequences, causing undue fear in their life.

The petition sought security and protection of couple from harassment and torture by family members and other relatives of the girl. ILNS/BG/RJ/SNG
