BANGALORE: In an interesting case pertaining to the issue of guardianship, the Karnataka high court has sent a six-year old girl child with her maternal grandfather while rejecting the plea put forward by her father seeking for custody.

"Having regard to the paramount consideration of the welfare of the child, we feel that the custody of the child is safe in the hands of the respondent (grandfather).The child is six years and she is well acquainted with the environment and surrounding circumstances and living happily with the grandparents.So,we do not prefer to interfere at this stage nor there are merits in the appeal" the division bench comprising Justices N K Patil and B V Pinto have observed in their order.
