the hands of private respondents No.5 to 8 (family members of

petitioner No.2), who are averse to their live-in relationship.

have been in a live-in relationship and they are continuously been

threatened with dire consequences by the private respondents. Hence,

there is a genuine apprehension of the life of the petitioners being in

peril. Resultantly, a representation dated 16.02.2024 (Annexure P-3)

was also made to respondent No.2-Senior Superintendent of Police,

Barnala, for protection of their life and liberty but in vain.

Learned counsel submits that the petitioners would be satisfied if

directions are issued to respondent No.2-Senior Superintendent of

Police, Barnala, to look into their representation (Annexure P-3) and
