The Delhi High Court on Saturday asked the city police to provide security to newly-weds belonging to two different religious communities,who are allegedly facing threat from their relatives and the Jammu and Kashmir police.

“The SHO of Hauz Khas police station,New Delhi,shall continue to provide police protection to the petitioners (couple) and ensure all steps are taken to avoid any untoward incident and also ensure that they are not removed from the territorial jurisdiction of this Court,” Justice G S Sistani said.

The Court’s direction came on a petition of Anjum Hussain alias Bhawani and Khemraj,the couple,seeking protection on the ground that they could be “killed by the Jammu and Kashmir police which is acting in connivance with their relatives”.

The couple has sought that the Jammu and Kashmir Police and their relatives,who did not approve of their affair and the subsequent marriage,be restrained from taking them to their native place.
