Kerala High Court on Monday has upheld a college - Mar Thoma College of Science and Technology - management's decision to rusticated two students after they decided to go for a live-in relationship.

Justice K Vinod Chandran in his judgement said that the adults should be ready to face consequences if they take such drastic steps.

"This is not a mere case of falling in love; but two students taking the drastic step of eloping and living together without even contracting a marriage. As consenting adults they could definitely act according to their volition. But, here they could not have even legally entered into a marriage," he said.

"When taking such drastic step for the sake of love, as adults, they should also be ready to face the consequences," he added.

The girl, a BA English literature student had approached the high court challenging the college management's decision to rusticate them.
