Justice Hima Kohli gave the order while hearing a case filed by a second year Delhi University student seeking protection from her parents and brother who were extending all kinds of threats apart from physically assaulting her.

During the course of the hearing however, under the court's intervention, the family came to terms with the contentions of the 22 year-old girl and assured not compel her to enter into any matrimonial alliance unless it is acceptable to her.

The family also assured the court that they would support her desire to become self-reliant by taking up a job after completing her graduation.
