Here live-in relationship still a cultural taboo. The girls wanted to live together and had feared threat from their families.
The court on Wednesday rejected the petition objecting to their live-in relationship. A division bench stated morality of the society cannot affect the decisions of the court. The bench referred to the Supreme Court judgment in which Section 377 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) was decriminalized.
And just four days after the judgment, the woman in Baghpat forcibly taken away by her family members. However this caught on camera and put on social media platforms.
