Sparsh Upadhyay | Live Law | Chandigarh | July 6, 2021:: The Punjab & Haryana High Court last week directed the senior superintendent of police, Sangrur to provide protection to a Muslim woman (and her husband) who converted to Hinduism to marry a Hindu man.
The bench of Justice Gurvinder Singh Gill was hearing the plea filed by one Rajina @ Jyoti and her husband Jaspal Sharma.
Fearing threat at the hands of private respondents, as the couple got married the wishes of their families, they had moved the court seeking issuance of a direction to official respondents to protect their lives and liberty.
Therefore, without commenting as regards the veracity of the averments made in their petition and also as regards the validity of alleged marriage of the petitioners, the petition was disposed of with a direction to the Senior Superintendent of Police, Sangrur, District Sangrur, Punjab to look into the matter and to dispose of their representation in accordance with the law.
“In case, it is found that there is a genuine threat to the lives and liberty of the petitioners, then necessary steps warranted under law be taken thereupon at the earliest so as to ensure that no harm is caused to the petitioners,” added the Court.
