HC refuses protection to Punjab runaway couple | India News – Times of India


    CHANDIGARH: The Punjab and Haryana high court has refused to grant protection to a runaway couple, where the girl is a minor, observing that the boy whom she had allegedly eloped with can’t be the “next friend”. It was of the view that only the parents, brother, uncle being the natural guardian of a minor girl can be her “next friend” for her protection, reports Ajay Sura.
    Justice Manoj Bajaj passed these orders while dismissing a petition filed by the couple from Punjab seeking protection to their life and liberty, citing that the girl’s family were against their relationship.
