Inter faith couple threaten to be killed

An inter-faith couple Tuesday approached the Delhi High Court seeking police protection, alleging that the woman’s family was threatening them. The plea alleged that the woman’s uncle, who she claimed is associated with the BJP and Hindu Sena, has threatened to “kill” her. Seeking to enforce their ‘Right to Life and Personal Liberty’, the couple, in their plea filed in the name of the woman, said the two are adults and that she had married the man of her “own free will”. Advocate Utkarsh Singh, who filed the petition on behalf of the woman, said the two met in March 2016, while the woman was working with a telecom company in Mumbai. The plea stated that the couple performed nikaah last month and the woman changed her name after conversion. It also highlighted the manner in which the woman was pressured by her parents after she disclosed her relationship with the man.
