Kerala had witnessed a strange case of a 19 year old girl, living together with an 18 year old man. The case had caught all attention of the public and the media, after the father of the girl had filed a habeas corpus petition to find and get back his daughter.
However, the petition which had the father seeking the 18 year old guy to surrender his 19 year old daughter to him, was dismissed by the division bench of Kerala High Court. The bench, which was presided over by the justices V Chitambresh and KP Jyothidnranath had dismissed the petition reasoning out that the couple are both majors above 18 years of age, and hence the court had no authority to separate them as they were living with mutual consent and as they are adults.
The verdict has come out in favor of
live in relationships in the society, as the relationship is consensual, and
that when they are adults and consensual, they cannot be separated even though
they are yet to get married. It must be noted that in its 2014 verdict,
even the Supreme court had said that live in relationships are not crimes.
Will Pawan Kalyan contest from Eluru Constituency? Accordingly Eluru' constituency is one sentimental seat for the people of Andhra Pradesh as this West Godavari capital carries the lucky charm that whoever wins as MLA at this constituency, his party will be in power throughout the state. Meanwhile that is the reason, some say, for Pawan Kalyan thinking to contest from here.
