Published by Admin on

Case: Mandeep Kaur Versus State of Punjab and others

Coram: Mr.Justice Anupinder Singh Grewal

Case No: CRWP No.8319 of 2020

Court Observation: “Even assuming a woman is or has been in an extramarital relationship, the same by itself cannot lead to the conclusion that she would not be a good mother to deny her the custody of her child.”

“Aside from the bald assertion in the petition, no supporting material has been brought before this Court,”

“Till the petitioner arrives in India to take the custody of the child, (the husband) shall ensure that the child interacts with the petitioner through video conferencing every Tuesday, Friday, and Sunday at 01:00 p.m. (IST) or as mutually agreed by them.”

“On the arrival of the petitioner in India and after observing Covid-19 protocol, the custody of the child shall be handed over to her by respondent No.4,”
