Court tells Delhi cops to protect newly-wed coupleJune 11th, 2012 - 7:49 pm ICT by IANS
New Delhi, June 11 (IANS) The Delhi High Court Monday came to the rescue of a newly-wed couple from Uttar Pradesh who complained of threats from their relatives and asked the city police to protect them during their stay here.
Justice S.P. Garg said: “Take their (the couple) address and provide them security.”
The petition said that the man married the woman June 6 here after she “willingly converted to Islam”.
The lawyer appearing for the couple said the man and his bride were majors and married “of their own free will” and the parents of the woman were opposed to the inter-religion marriage.
“The petitioners want to lead a happy married life. However, it is not possible for them to live peacefully without proper protection. They are being forced to keep changing their shelter,” said the petition.
The couple filed the ‘nikahnama’ and the school certificates of the girl in support of the plea that they were majors and married voluntarily.
