SC Allows Karnataka Minister’s Daughter To End Her ‘Forced Marriage’ And Live With Her Lover

Giving primacy to free will, the Supreme Court on Monday allowed an influential Karnataka politician’s daughter to break free from matrimonial and parental ties and live her life the way she chose to. The 26-year-old woman had fled home complaining that she was forced to get married against her wish.

In a dramatic act, the politician’s daughter, referred in SC records as ‘X’, had left her parents’ home in Gulbarga for Delhi 20 days after being tortured into marrying a man instead of her lover. Within hours of moving the SC while under the care of the Delhi Commission for Women, she was given Delhi Police protection.
