Authorities directed to ensure peaceful married life to a young couple seeking protection

Manish Chaturvedi And Another vs State Of U P And 2 Others

Allahabad HC


WRIT - C No. - 21951 of 2018

About/from the judgment:

The petition was filed praying for the protection of the petitioners from the respondents. It was prayed that a writ of mandamus be issued against the respondents not to interfere in petitioners’ matrimonial life. On the basis of the NEET admit card, the Court noted the fact that Petitioner 2 (girl) was above 18 years of age and had married Petitioner 1 (boy). The Court referred to Lata Singh v. State of U.P., (2006) 5 SCC 475: (2006) 2 SCC (Cri) 478, wherein it was observed, This is a free and democratic country, and once a person becomes a major, he/she can marry whoever they like. If the parents of the boy/girl do not approve of inter-caste or inter-religious marriage, they can at the most cut social ties with their son/daughter, but they cannot give threats or commit or instigate violent acts against them. As such, the petition was disposed of directing the respondent Authorities to ensure undisturbed peaceful married life to the petitioners.
