The court said that the father is the natural guardian of his child.
The court said that the deterioration of relations in the family has a bad effect on the children, so resolve the differences.
Due to mutual estrangement and differences between husband and wife, the Allahabad High Court has made a very important remark in the matter which reached the court’s threshold. The High Court, while hearing a case of bitterness in the relationship between the Etawah couple, has observed the desire of the child that the parents should settle their differences for the happiness and peace of their children.
The court said that the father is the natural guardian of his child. It is not proper to file a habeas corpus petition to get rid of the father from the clutches of serious allegations like attempt to murder between husband and wife. The court refused to interfere and ordered that the petitioner would stay with her father. Mother and father can visit each other’s house every Sunday and meet the children. During this time, do not dispute and will not create any obstruction. Along with this, the investigating officer of the FIR has been directed to conduct counseling and mediation of both, so that the differences between them can be resolved.
The court said that the deterioration of relations in the family has a bad effect on the children, so resolve the differences. Justice Saurabh Shyam Shamsheri has given this order on the habeas corpus petition filed by mother Ashi Verma on behalf of 7-year-old Granth Verma. In the case, the mother of the petitioner, Ashi Verma, alleged that her husband Gaurav Verma has kept her 7-year-old child captive. Her husband has been harassing her for years and when she went to pick up the child with the police, she misbehaved. So, she should get her child back. While hearing the matter, the court said that the child is happy with his father and he wants to study there by staying there. He has no complaints against his father. As such, the petition cannot be accepted.
However, the court exempted the mother from meeting her child. The second younger child is living with the mother. The court rejected the petitioner’s demand to get custody of the son and said to exercise the right under the Protection Act.
