The High Court of Punjab and Haryana has dismissed a petition filed by a lawyer seeking action against Prince Harry and to direct the UK police cell to take action against him as he broke his promise to marry her. There was also a prayer to issue arrest warrants against him.
The petitioner produced some emails which show the correspondence between her and Prince Harry where it was stated that Prince promised to marry her shortly.
The Court questioned the petitioner if she had travelled to the United Kingdom but the petitioner stated that she did not travel. She stated that she had contact only through social media. The Court after hearing the petitioner in person came to a conclusion that the petition was just a day dreamer’s fantasy about marrying Prince Harry.
While dismissing the petition, Justice Arvind Singh Sangwan observed as follows: “It is a well known fact that fake IDs are created on various social media sites like Facebook, Twitter etc and authenticity of such conversation cannot be relied upon by the Court. There is every possibility that the so-called Prince Harry may be sitting in a Cyber Cafe of a village in Punjab, looking for greener pastures for himself.”
