Patna HC rules in favour of girl detained for wanting to marry on her own

The detention is because of the fact that the girl wanted to marry against their wishes

In a rather intriguing case, the Patna High Court has come to the rescue of a girl who has been detained against her will by her parents.

What stands out is that the girl being detained is daughter of former Bihar district judge.

The detention is because of the fact that the girl wanted to marry against their wishes.

A division bench headed by Chief Justice Rajendra Menon passed the order yesterday.

It is all the more glaring that the woman is in her early 20s but is also a law graduate.

It is learnt that the girl wanted to marry a Delhi-based advocate.

The court had taken suo motu cognizance of a report on a media site alleging that the woman had been illegally confined by her
parents.

The court had on June 26 last, ordered that since the woman was not comfortable with her parents and did not want to stay with them, she be lodged at the guest house of her alma mater in the meantime.
