New Delhi, August 4
“All’s well that ends well,” Delhi High Court said after being informed that a newlywed couple, separated by the woman’s family, had reunited under her leadership and were staying together safely in the national capital.
The High Court also praised the Delhi police for their âefficient and swiftâ action in this matter.
The woman, held against her will at her father’s home in neighboring Uttar Pradesh, was returned to Delhi to her marital home on instructions from the High Court.
A bench of Judge Siddharth Mridul and Anup Jairam Bhambhani was informed that as she left her parental home in Mirhechi in the Etha district of UP to come to Delhi she was threatened by her family members immediate with disastrous consequences.
The bench directed here the SHO of the Anand Parbat police station to ensure the safety and well-being of the couple.
“All’s well that ends well. In view of the above, the relief sought in this habeas corpus petition is satisfied,” the court said after being informed by the husband’s lawyer that the two had been reunited.
The court was hearing a habeas corpus petition filed by the husband praying that his wife, who was illegally prevented by her family from returning to Delhi, would be brought to court.
The court appreciated Delhi Police, Inspector Yogendra, SHO and Constable Sanjay from Anand Parbat Police Station for the swift and effective action they took.
On August 2, the high court ordered police in Delhi and Uttar Pradesh to escort the woman to her marital home from the paternal place.
The decision was made after the woman, who joined the video conference to hear from her parental home, “expressed her clear and unequivocal intention” and her desire to return and be with her husband in Delhi.
The court said it was common knowledge that the woman had married voluntarily in June 2021 to Arya Samaj Mandir in Rohini, after which the newlyweds made their home in the man’s house here.
However, it was later claimed that the couple had been separated by the wife’s family and taken to the parental home, the court recorded. PTI
