On Tuesday (06/07/2021), the Supreme Court refused to entertain a plea filed by a Kerala-based spiritual practitioner seeking the release of his 21-year-old live-in partner from the custody of her parents. The bench headed by Chief Justice NV Ramana also referred to the case of pop singer Britney Spears in the US court while hearing the plea.

The SC said that the 42-year-old petitioner is a married man with two children and has dubious antecedents. The man had claimed in his plea that his live-in partner was illegally detained by her parents. He challenged the Kerala High Court judgment which had dismissed his Habeas Corpus plea seeking release of the woman.

The HC had noted that the woman was not capable of making decisions on her own.

"The thing is the facts are such and the antecedent of the petitioner is such that it does not inspire confidence," said Justice Roy.

"The girl is fragile state of mind. She is 21 and does not know what she is doing. The man is married with two children," the CJI weighed in.

Interestingly, the Court also referred to the Britney Spears case playing out in USA.

"One week back we saw a case in the USA where laws, culture is different. In USA unless an adult gives a consent they cant be given treatment. Now the entire family is on the roads because of that since a mentally unstable person cannot give consent," the CJI said.
