Granting police protection to married woman in live-in relationship may amount to giving consent for such illicit relation: Rajasthan High Court

The High Court, therefore, refused to extend police protection to a couple in a live-in relationship since the woman in the relationship was already married.

Justice Satish Kumar Sharma relied on the recent judgment of the Allahabad High Court in Smt. Aneeta vs. State of UP observing that it is a well-settled legal position that a live-in relationship cannot be at the cost of the country’s social fabric.

"It is well settled legal position as expounded by the Division Bench of Hon’ble Allahabad High Court in Smt. Aneeta. v. State of UP that live-in relationship cannot be at the cost of the social fabric of this country, and directing the police to grant protection may indirectly give our assent to such illicit relations," the Court said in its order.
