In Sareddy Ashok Reddy vs The State Of Telangana And 3 Others, on 2nd July 2020, Telangana HC directs to restore the custody of the detenue wife to her father. The Court also allows her not to resume the cohabitation with the Petitioner, as she happens to be a major.

Brief Facts of the Case

The Petitioner enters into marriage with the detenue on 17.06.2020 at Temple. Later, the detenue had health issues. She went to her paternal house at Bhadrachalam with her will. Subsequently, she was denied to resume her cohabitation with the Petitioner. The Petitioner filed a writ petition to continue the cohabitation.

Admission of the Detenue to the Court

The Station House Officer produced Ms Yadamakanti Poojitha Reddy, the detenue, before the Court. Hon’ble Mr Justice B. Vijaysen Reddy spoke to the detenue in her mother tongue. She informs the Court that she was born on 17.06.2001. Therefore, she is a 19-year-old young lady. According to her, the Petitioner had forced her to enter into marriage on 17.06.2020 at the Temple. Since she is having certain health issues, out of her own free volition, she went to her parental house at Bhadrachalam. Later, she went to Hyderabad to address her medical issues. Most importantly, she had no desire to resume her cohabitation with the Petitioner.

Contention of the Petitioner

The learned counsel for the Petitioner submits photographs of the marriage. In the photographs, the detenue is smiling. It reveals that it is not forced marriage, but is a voluntary one. Therefore, he challenged the statement made by the detenue.

Observation of the Court

At present, the Court is concerned only with the legality or illegality of the custody of the detenue with Respondent No. 4, her father. Since the detenue happens to be a major, she also expressed her desire to go back to her parental place. She had no desire to resume cohabitation with the Petitioner.

Decision of the Court

The Court directs the Respondent No.3 to restore the custody of the detenue to her father. Therefore, the writ petition is hereby dismissed.
