Written by Times News Network   

NEW DELHI: Six-year-old Sonu (name changed), who was staying with his undertrial father in Tihar Jail since February 2008, will now be able to go to school. The court had made an exception in his case by allowing the father to take care of his son inside the jail premises.

A sessions court on Tuesday has ordered the separation of the six-year-old boy from his father, who had refused to part with his son, to ensure the child's education. ASJ Inderjeet Singh directed the jail superintendent to get the child admitted in an institution for his boarding and education and ordered his separation from his father Sheikh Sonu facing trial on the charge of running a prostitution racket.

Last one year, Sonu has been living with his father in jail after his mother abandoned him following his father's arrest. The court had earlier let him stay with his father as there was one to take care of him.

As per the order, the child's custody will now be given to social welfare department, which will ensure the education of the boy. The child will be required to stay in one of the department's run homes. The jail authorities had earlier filed a report with the court seeking its direction stating that the child, who had attained six years of age, needed proper education.

They told the court that the accused did not want his son to be separated from him as he feared that he would not be able to meet the child again. Also, that he would not be properly brought up without his care.

In response to the father's apprehenshions, the jail superintendent recently submitted his final report stating that as per the guidelines, the child will be able to meet his father at regular intervals. Following the assurance from jail authorities that the welfare of the child would be looked into from all angles, the court directed his separation of the child from his father.
