HC asks Delhi police to protect newly-wed couple
New Delhi: The Delhi High on Tuesday asked the
police to give protection to a couple who got married against
the wishes of the parents of the bride.
"The Delhi police are directed to provide security to
the petitioners (the couple)," Justice AK Pathak said.
Disposing of the plea filed by the couple, the court said
life and personal liberty of the petitioners be protected and
directed the SHO of Vijay Vihar police station to keep in
touch with the couple.
The court, however, asked the couple to keep the police
informed about their whereabouts and movement, if any.
The petition, filed through advocate SS Dahiya, said the
man, hailing from Saharanpur in Uttar Pradesh, eloped with his
girlfriend and married at a temple in Delhi against the wishes
of her parents on February 3.
"Now they fear for their lives as the parents of the
bride want to lodge criminal cases against her husband and
they be protected," their lawyer said.
The court allowed their plea and asked the police to
protect them during their stay in Delhi.
