Delhi court sentenced police for arrest: “UP Mein Chalta Hoga, Yahaan Nahin"
"UP Mein Chalta Hoga Yaha Nahin" (It might work in Uttar Pradesh, won't work here) This is what the Delhi Supreme Court said today when it cursed the Uttar Pradesh police for arresting two relatives of a man who married a woman against his family's wishes. The couple is an adult couple who voluntarily married in July and have received repeated threats from the woman's family.
"Somebody comes to you, and you go to arrest people without confirming her age? Whether she is minor or a major?", the court said.
The man's father and brother were arrested by UP Shamli police and taken away from Delhi without informing the Delhi police. It is not known where she was a month after her arrest. "It is trite law that the father and brother of the petitioner No. 2 could not be apprehended by U.P. Police and taken from Delhi without informing Delhi Police," the court observed.
Delhi police told the court the arrests took place on September 8 after the woman's mother filed a complaint.
"One fails to understand when petitioner No.1 is major and has left her parental home of her own free will and married to petitioner No. 2 how an offence under Section 366 IPC (Kidnapping, abducting or inducing woman to compel her marriage, etc) and a consequential offence under Section 368 IPC (Wrongfully concealing or keeping in confinement, kidnapped or abducted person) is made out," the court order stated.
