Noting that a hypertechnical and mechanical approach shall do no good to the parties, #AllahabadHighCourt grants bail to a rape accused.
The barely major young man had allegedly enticed away his alleged minor lover and got her pregnant. The girl child is 3.5 years old now.
Court took note of the youth's submission that he and the victim were lovers and due to fear of families and co-villagers who were against their alliance as the two belonged to the same village and community, they eloped and the girl's father filed a case against him.
Court said, "In this conservative and non-permissive society, it is true that marriage in the same village is prohibited and is not customary, and it may be an after effect of media and cinema, instances of marriage in the same village are on the rise."

#AllahabadHighCourt holds that against any order u/S 5 of the Maintenance and Welfare of Parents and Senior Citizens Act 2007, the right to appeal u/S 16(1) is available 'not only' to the senior citizen and parents 'but also' to the children, relative, or other person too.
Section 16(1) reads, "Any senior citizen or a parent, as the case may be, aggrieved by an order of a Tribunal may, within sixty days from the date of the order, prefer an appeal to the Appellate Tribunal....." Image
Court said, "Maintenance has to be given by some person or institute or a juristic person and if such a maintenance is been granted, some person must be affected and thus, non-mentioning of the words in Section 16(1) is not a casus omissus, but it seems an accidental omission."
