1. Petitioner Smt. Payal Sharma @ Kamla Sharma appeared before us and stated that she is about 21 years of age which is borne out from the High School certificate which shows that her date of birth is 10.7.1980. Hence she is a major and she has the right to go anywhere and live with anyone. In our opinion a man and a woman, even without getting married can live together if they wish. This may be regarded immoral by society but Jt is not illegal. There is a difference between law and morality.
2. Since the petitioner is a major, we direct that she be set at liberty and she can go anywhere and can live with anyone as she desired. Petitioner further states that her life is in danger. The police will ensure her security. The petition is allowed.
3. The certified copy of this order shall be given to the learned counsel for the petitioner on payment of usual charges today.
