Hon’ble Delhi High Court held that, “It is settled law that right to travel is a facet of personal liberty and is protected by Article 21 of the Constitution of India. (See Maneka Gandhi Vs. Union of India & Anr., (1978) 1 SCC 248 and Satwant Singh Sawhney Vs. D. Ramarathnam, Assistant Passport Officer, Government of India, New Delhi & Ors., AIR 1976 SC 1836).”
13. This Court is also of the opinion that if the impugned condition imposed by the
Additional Sessions Judge is not immediately set aside, the petitioner in the near future
could lose her job.
14. Moreover, in the opinion of this Court, petitioner who is having no criminal
antecedents and good academic qualifications is unlikely to abscond.
15. Consequently, present petition is allowed and the condition imposed by the impugned
order dated 06th October, 2012 restraining the petitioner from leaving the boundary of
the NCT of Delhi as well as the NCR and the country without the prior permission of the
Court of Metropolitan Magistrate is set aside.
16. The SHO/Investigating Officer is directed to release the petitioner’s passport forthwith.
