Chandigarh: In a measure to safeguard lovers, Punjab and Haryana High Court on Thursday directed the state governments to circulate information about shelter house for couples with the help of media.

The Court has asked Punjab and Haryana governments to reply by December 12, what other methods could be viable for spreading information about shelter homes for couples.

Bench headed by Justice M M Kumar and R N Raina said, “People are still unaware of shelter homes made by the government. Radio, TV and other mediums should be used to inform and educate people about it.”

Advocate Navkiran Singh said, “Young couples must be aware of the fact that they can seek protection from the court but no marriages are conducted here. Formalities pertaining to marriage can be carried out in the shelter homes.”
