No parole can be granted for maintaining conjugal relationships with live-in partner: DHC

The Delhi High Court (DHC) in an application under S.482 Cr.P.C. seeking grant of parole for consummation of his marriage with his live-in partner has held that, neither the law in India or the Delhi Prison Rules, 2018 “permit grant of parole on the ground of maintaining conjugal relationships, that too with live-in partners.” The DHC further noted that the ‘right to procreation’ enshrined under Art.21 of the Constitution of India is not an absolute right.
