The court was apprised that as per its earlier directions, the family – the boy, his parents and sister – spent some time together at the Delhi High Court crèche and they wish to interact with each other again. The woman, who had come to India with her daughter to meet the child, told a bench of Justices Siddharth Mridul and Amit Sharma that on November 22, when they were with the child at the crèche and she took photographs of the child as a keepsake, her ex-husband forcibly took her away. Deleted it from my phone.
On this, the court said, “You try and reduce the points of disharmony.” Your objective is to be able to have a conversation with your son, so do so. The child has to reach a stage where he is comfortable with the mother. Sometimes the child gets deeply traumatised.” The bench allowed the woman to meet and interact with the child at the ‘court crèche’ as the boy’s father said he had no objection to the arrangement.
The court has asked both the parties to appear again on Friday.
On November 22, the court had asked the family to spend some time together in an effort to reunite the child with its mother.
The woman had earlier informed the court that she was divorced and although a Ukrainian court had granted her custody of the minor, her ex-husband brought the boy without informing her. The woman, in her petition through advocate Shravan Kumar, has alleged that her son was abducted by her ex-husband on March 23 when the former husband had taken the child for a walk and did not return. After the break-up of their marriage last year, the man was given visitation rights to his minor son.
The woman has also filed a case with the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) or the Delhi Police for kidnapping, illegal travel of a minor without valid documents, making fake Indian passports in Ukraine and causing pain to her and her daughter, besides requesting the child’s production. Also requested to give instructions.
