According to what was written, “The final hearing was supposed to take place on September 28, 2007, in the court of justice NN Tiwary; however, due to unforeseen circumstances, the hearing was never held.”
The petitioners claimed that their cases had not been taken up in the court over the course of the previous four years, and as a result, life had become intolerable for their families.
Their daughters do not have husbands, the schools where their children were enrolled expelled them for not paying fees, and they were unable to afford medical treatment as it became more expensive.
