Chandigarh, November 20 (Language) The Punjab and Haryana High Court has held that marriage between children of maternal uncle-tau, maternal uncle and aunt is illegal. The court, while hearing a plea on Thursday, said that the petitioner wants to marry the daughter of his father’s brother, who is the sister of his relationship and it is illegal in itself. The judge said, “It has been argued in the petition that whenever the girl turns 18, they will marry but it is still illegal.” In the case registered under sections 363 and 366A of the Indian Penal Code, the police station moved the High Court against the Punjab government requesting anticipatory bail. Opposing the bail plea, the state government’s counsel had argued that the girl is a minor and her parents had lodged an FIR that her and the boy’s father are brothers. The young man’s lawyer told Justice Arvind Singh Sangwan that the petitioner has also filed a criminal writ petition with the girl for life and liberty. Accordingly, the girl is 17 years old and the petitioner had argued in the petition that the two were in a ‘live-in’ relationship. The girl had feared the harassment of both of them by her parents. The court disposed of the petition on September 7. The state was directed to provide security if the young man and the girl were suspected of any danger. However, the judge made it clear that the order will not protect the petitioners from legal action in the event of any violation of law.
