The duo, natives of Ludhiana in Punjab, filed their plea before Metropolitan Magistrate Monika Saroha, alleging that they were subjected to torture, harassment, beating and all kinds of abuse, when they were residing with their parents. The younger sister, preparing for her civil services exam, told the judge that “they are students and they have no source of income to maintain them”.
In their plea, the girls told the court that the trouble began when the elder sister, a final year B.Com student, told her father, a shopkeeper, that she wanted to pursue MBA. The younger one, a first-year B.Com student, too wanted to study for an MBA. But their father threatened to withdraw both of them from college, the petition said. The counsel also said the parents should be prohibited from committing any act of domestic violence. The girl’s father should be stopped from repeating any acts of physical and mental abuse, sexual abuse, threatening, lodging false cases or sending friends to threaten them and their friends. (PTI)
