A city court on Friday asked the Delhi Police to provide protection to a woman who was allegedly assaulted by her relatives along with Jammu and Kashmir police personnel at a shelter home in the Capital for marrying her Hindu neighbour. “The SHO of Hauz Khas police station is directed to provide protection to the girl,” Metropolitan Magistrate Saurabh Kulshreshtha said.

Anjum Hussain,19,and Khem Raj,23,had eloped from Jammu and arrived in the Capital earlier this week; the two tied the knot on Wednesday. Anjum had taken shelter at a hostel run by Mohini Giri,former chairperson of the National Commission for Women,here.

The Jammu and Kashmir police,which had lodged an FIR against Khem Raj for kidnapping the girl,had sent its personnel to arrest him.
