allahabad high court

Allahabad High Court: In a bail application filed by an accused who allegedly refused to marry the victim after having sexual relationship with her on a false promise to marry her, on the ground that she has a Mangal dosh in her Kundali, Brij Raj Singh, J. directed the Astrology Department of Lucknow University to determine if an alleged rape victim is a Mangalik by examining her kundali in three weeks.

The accused submitted that the victim is mangalik, therefore, marriage could not be solemnised and the same has been refused. Per Contra, the victim has submitted that she is not mangalik.

The Court directed the Head of Department (Astrology Department), Lucknow University to decide the matter whether the girl is mangalik or not and directed the parties to produce the kundali before the Astrology Department of Lucknow University.

Further, the Court directed the Head of Astrology Department to submit the report in a sealed cover within three weeks to this Court.

The matter will next be taken up on 26-06-2023.
