Delhi HC provide police protection to Muslim couple, married against wishes of family 

New Delhi, Jun 28 (ILNS) The Delhi High Court, on Friday, granted police protection to a Muslim couple who got married against the wishes of the family members of the girl and directed the Delhi Police to file the status report of the case. 

A Vacation Bench of Single-Judge Justice Jasmeet Singh, directed the Delhi Government and the concerned Station House Officer (SHO) to ensure that the life and liberty of the couple is adequately protected. Accordingly, the Bench directed the couple to give their residential address to the concerned SHO.

The petition has been filed by a man and his wife seeking necessary and adequate protection and safety from the father and brother of his wife. The petitioners said that they are both major and belong to the same community. They got married on June 21, 2021, according to Muslim rites and customs, against the wishes of the girl’s family. 

The plea further said, that after knowing the factum of the marriage of the petitioners, the father and brother of the girl threatened to kill the couple. The petitioners are also approaching the local police regularly to get the boy arrested.

The plea sought to restrain the father and brother of the girl for the undue interference and disturbance in their peaceful and happy married life and to direct them not to harass, humiliate and torture them to the extend of death threats.

The Bench directed Adv. Rajesh Mahajan, Additional standing counsel for the State, to file the Status Report of the case before the next date of hearing. The court also issued notice to the father and brother of the girl.

The matter will now come up on July 30, 2021. ILNS/BG/SNG
