Hyderabad: The Hyderabad High Court on Tuesday responded to the letter of a woman whose son had married a girl from another caste and issued notices to the DGPs of AP and Telangana and other police officers in Ananthapur and Rachakonda Police Commissionerate.
Ms. Pushpalatha of Ananthapur, a retired officer of Sri Venkateswara University, wrote to the Chief Justice of the HC saying that her son Sai and Soumya of Hyderabad loved each other. The girl approached her and threatened to commit suicide if they were not allowed to marry. The two got married and are living in Ananthapur.
She submitted that Rachakonda police Commiss-ionerate had barged into their house on a complaint by the girl’s father. The police manhandled her and her husband. They were taken to the police station and detained for a day.
She told the court that following the police’s highhandedness had tried to commit suicide by swalloing sleeping pills and is currently battling for life. She alleged that some police officers of Rachakonda Commissionerate in Hyder-abad too had played an undue role in the case. The High Court has taken up the latter as a PIL and issued notices to the police officers.
