The police attached to the Yetthapur and Ammapettai police stations in Salem district did not mete out any harassment and they will not interfere in the marital life of an inter-caste couple, the Madras High Court was assured.

Recording the assurance given by the Special Government Pleader, Justice D Hariparanthaman closed a writ petition from Kiruthika, who sought to restrain the police from interfering with her peaceful married life with her husband D Vallar at the behest of her father. According to Kiruthika, belonging a backward class community and studying in Vaishya College in Salem, she fell in love with her senior, Vallal, a youth belonging to the SC community, doing his BBA course in the same college.

When her father Panneerselvam came to know the love affair, he threatened her and attempted to get her married off to another person belonging to the same case. However, Kiruthika eloped with Vallal and got married in a temple in Salem on Dec 12 last year. As her father continued to threaten her and was making attempts to separate her from Vallal with the help of the local police, Kiruthika filed the present writ petition.
