Jyoti Nooran’s, one among the famous singing sisters duo known as Nooran Sisters, affair has taken a twist when Jyoti and along with her newly wed husband Kunal Passi appeared in the Punjab and Harayana High Court at Chandigarh seeking protection from her parents and her elder sister Sultana Nooran. Jyoti was spotted wearing choora in her arms and Kunal was having an unkempt grown up beard. In the court of Honourable Justice TPS Maan, Jyoti Nooran urged for her protection because she has married a guy of her choice.
According to Jyoti her parents and sister are against this relationship and they wanted her to marry a guy of their choice. She, through her counsel, alleged that her parents are greedy and cunning. They want to marry her to a guy whom she does not seem fit for her. She told the court that she is in love with Kunal for two years and she tried hard to convince her parents for this marriage. But when she smelled danger to her life, she decided to get married with Kunal against her parents wish immediately. Therefore she willingly went thru a marriage ceremony according to Hindu rituals in a temple and started living with Kunal. Court ordered to give them shelter in protection home situated in sector 19 of Chandigarh. Court also ordered Jyoti Nooran to prove her age. The case has now been fixed for August 21 for further hearing.

On the other hand, Jyoti’s parents presented her matriculation certificate in front of the court claiming that she is still minor and has not attained the legal age of marriage. Jyoti’s counsel defended with the argument that above certificate was forged by her parents on the behest of a promoter for a foreign trip because her mother wanted to accompany her in this foreign tour. This forged certificate was prepared to accompany her as care taker of her ‘minor’ daughter. According to above certificate Jyoti’s birth date is 24 February 1998 while Jyoti claimed that she has attained the legal age of marriage because her real date of birth is 24 February 1994 and her husband was born in 1988. Further she appealed the court that she is ready to go through any scientific test which can testify her maturity. Court has given her the permission to go through Ossification Test which establishes the age based on the growth pattern of bones and teeth. Earlier Jyoti and Kunal approached Police Commissioner of Jalandhar to provide them protection.
During the hearing in the court Jyoti and her parents had a heated argument and court stopped the proceeding of their case keeping it pending for the day. Later in the second round of hearing court ordered the protection for the couple.
