Court deems 'order' to give birth to baby boy immoral; In-laws seek time to file reply affidavit

b

KOCHI: The in-laws have argued in the High Court that the woman made the allegation that she was given 'instructions' on the day of her marriage to conceive a boy only after 13 years. The court verbally stated that it is against morality to insist on the birth of a boy, and the complaint shocks the conscience of society.

The petitioner has produced a copy of an article published in a magazine regarding the alleged 'instructions'. The advocate mentioned this supporting the opposing parties, Muvattupuzha Vazhapilli Mudavoor Manimalakallath Thomas Joseph and Salima Joseph. Time was also requested to file a reply affidavit.

Ashla Roy, a native of Kollam approached the High Court against her husband and family. Her husband is in England. According to the woman's petition, the Director of the Prenatal Diagnostic Division and Additional Director of the Family Welfare Department did not take action on the complaint against her in-laws. The woman got married in 2012. It was her husband's father who allegedly gave written instructions to the young woman to give birth to a boy.

Subsequently, the woman went to London with her husband. She returned home when she became pregnant. After giving birth to a baby girl in 2014, she alleges that her in-laws tortured her and forced her into separation. She informed that there is a case in the family court for divorce. The woman explains that she delayed filing the complaint because she was in a poor mental state. She is currently at her home in Kollam with her ten-year-old daughter.
