New Delhi:The Supreme Court on Friday (July 9, 2021) issued notices to odisha, jammu and kashmir and chandigarh administrations in a case related to 'love jihad'. The notice has been sent after looking into a petition filed by a Hindu couple from Odisha. In the petition, he has demanded the Supreme Court to protect his daughter from 'love jihad'.
According to media reports, the victim's lawyer Sudarshan Menon argued before a bench of Justices UU Lalit, Ajay Rastogi and Justice Anirudh Bose stating that the girl was expelled from a Muslim youth in Chandigarh and then missing. The lawyer said that the parents have no information about where the daughter is after marriage, what is the condition. His daughter has disappeared since marriage. The court has issued notices to the three states after hearing the plea. The next date of hearing has been fixed for July 23.
The girl's parents Kavita and Kedarnath had filed a habeas corpus writ in the apex court fearing threat to their daughter's life. His daughter had studied B Pharma with a youth from Jammu and Kashmir at Berhampur in Odisha before going to Lucknow. Then he came to Chandigarh in search of a job and got married. His last clue was found in Bandipora in Jammu and Kashmir, since then he has been missing. The young man the girl married is a resident of Bandipora.
