Custody of girl child should be kept with mother: Bombay High Court

“The custody of a female child should be allowed to remain with her mother so that she could be looked after properly,” observed Bombay high court while rejecting a man’s petition seeking permanent custody of his daughter.

A division bench of justices VA Naik and AM Badar of the Nagpur bench of HC recently dismissed the appeal filed by a man, a teacher of Nagar Parishad High School in Katol, who challenged the family court’s order refusing to grant him his daughter’s custody in August 2013.

The HC observed that the family court had rightly dismissed the husband’s custody petition. The couple married in June 2005 and their daughter was born on March 23, 2006. Due to disputes, the two got divorced.
