‘Get eloped couple married in 8 days’
Sunanda, the mother of a girl who had eloped (Bangalore Mirror, July 21, 2011), disowned her daughter in court on Thursday. Meanwhile, the boy produced documents to prove that he has obeyed an earlier order to deposit Rs 2 lakh in the girl’s name. However, the court found that the parents of the couple had not got them married.
The girl’s mother had filed a habeas corpus after the couple eloped. The boy and girl, both adults, were produced in court. The mother of the girl and the parents of the boy had agreed to get them married. The court had ordered the boy to deposit Rs two lakh in the girl’s name to prove his bona fides.
When the case came up before the division bench of Justice N Ananda and V S Appa Rao on Thursday, the boy showed a copy of a DD in the girl’s name. However, the girl’s mother backtracked from her promise to get them married and also disowned her daughter.
The court then told the boy’s parents to get the couple married in eight days.
