MANJARI NEHRU KAUL, J. (ORAL)

1. The instant petition has been filed under Article 226 of the

Constitution of India for issuance of writ in the nature of mandamus

seeking directions to the official respondents to protect the life and

liberty of the petitioners at the hands of private respondents.

2. Learned counsel inter alia contends that the petitioners are

apprehending threats at the hands of private respondents, who are father

and mother of petitioner No.1 as well as uncle of petitioner No.2. He

submits that ever since the petitioners have solemnized marriage

against the wishes of the private respondents, they are being

continuously threatened with dire consequences. It has been further

submitted that representation (Annexure P-5) dated 03.02.2024 was

also made to respondent No.1 – Superintendent of Police, District

Palwal, however, it had proved to be in vain.

3. Notice of motion to the official respondents.

4. At the asking of Court, Mr. Rahul Mohan, Sr. Dy.

Advocate General, Haryana accepts notice on behalf of the said

respondents.

5. In view of the submissions made by learned counsel for the

petitioners, the petition is disposed of with a direction to respondent

No.1 – Superintendent of Police, District Palwal to look into the

representation (Annexure P-5) dated 03.02.2024 and take necessary

steps, if any required, in accordance with law, to ensure that the life and

liberty of the petitioners is not jeopardized at the hands of the private

respondents. However, this direction will not validate the marriage

alleged to have taken place between the parties and will have no effect

on any civil or criminal action, which could be initiated in the matter in

accordance with law.
