The Hon’ble High Court of Gujarat made a pertinent observation that the concept of cast system has made it very difficult for the young couples to choose their life partner. The matter was heard by Justice Sonia Gokani and NV Anjaria, they noted that it is very difficult for the administration to balance emotional and social factors that may follow, which eventually leads to legal battleground.  

The petitioner moved to High Court under the ambit of Article 226 of the Indian Constitution when the wife’s family took her back from the petitioner after the marriage. The High Court asked the investigating officer to adopt the method of Social Policing to come to an amicable solution between0 the petitioner and the family.
