SC intervenes in Mughal-e-Azam 2013

The Supreme Court played cupid on Monday when the daughter of a sitting judge of the Rajasthan High Court, Justice R.S. Rathore, appeared before it and expressed her desire to marry her beau.

As reported by Delhi Durbar, the Supreme Court had directed the Station House Officer (SHO) of Gandhi Nagar police station in Jaipur to produce Ms. Supriya Rathore, daughter of Justice Rathore, before the court, after a writ petition of Habeas Corpus was filed in the Supreme Court by Siddharth Mukherjee, Ms. Rathore’s partner.

The petition has alleged that Justice Rathore was against the two getting married due to caste differences and had placed his daughter under confinement.

Ms. Rathore appeared before the court on Monday and said, “I have no ill will towards anybody. I have no complaints against my parents. I love them all,” adding, “But let me go with the petitioner Siddharth Mukherjee. I want to marry him.”

The Supreme Court then directed the Station House Officer (SHO) of Gandhi Nagar police station to release Ms. Rathore and allow her the freedom to go with Mukherjee.

The court also clarified, “We permit Ms. Supriya Rathore to approach us if anybody causes any inconvenience in future.”
