There is a joint affidavit of both the petitioners filed in support of the present writ petition seeking quashing of the FIR dated 10.11.2018. As per the affidavit the age of the girl is 20 years, the same is based on the Aadhar Card. Further contention is that both the petitioners are adult and have solemnized marriage of their sweet will, without any fear, threat of coercion. It has further informed that they have applied for registration of their marriage. The application in this regard has been annexed as Annexure-4 (page -24) of the writ petition. The court has been informed that the girl Shivani is present before the court today and thus court proceeds to examine as to whether she has signed on the affidavit or not.

She says "Kyunki har saal 8 August ko Meri saalgirah manai jaati hai, isliye maalum hai".
