While hearing through video conferencing the Court finds that she has been moved with Babloo and married him. The same was recorded under Section 164 of The Code of Criminal Procedure, 1973. The bench comprising of Justice Vipin Sanghi and Justice Rajnish Bhatnagar has permitted Sulekha to reside with Babloo and directs police authorities to protect her and safely get her to the residence of Babloo and also directs that mobile phone number of the constable of the police station where they both resides should be provided to both, so that they may get in touch with police officials in case of need. The Court also directs the police authorities to counsel the family of Sulekha not to take the law into their hands. Hence, the petition stands disposed of in the aforesaid terms.
