Minor accused of kidnapping major girl cannot seek protection from prosecution citing live-in relationship with her: Allahabad High Court

The Court added that live-in relationships have not been given any "protective umbrella under any law" except that two adults have a right to live their own life and, to that extent, their personal liberty is protected.

A child cannot be in a live-in relationship as that would be immoral and illegal, observed the Allahabad High Court recently while rejecting a plea to protect a 17-year-old boy from criminal prosecution initiated allegedly on account of his live-in relationship with a 19-year-old girl.
