Chetna Kumble moves SC over child custody PDF Print E-mail

Written by Dhananjay Mahapatra   

New Delhi: Five years after the Supreme Court decisively ruled in favour of Chetna, wife of famous cricketer Anil Kumble, to keep custody of her daughter from her previous marriage, she has again knocked the doors of the apex court to resist her ex-husband’s fresh moves to take back the girl.

A Bench comprising Justices Tarun Chatterjee and H L Dattu issued notice to her ex-husband, Kumar Jahgirdar, and stayed all proceedings in the custody case before the Bangalore family court.

Raising important questions relating to custody rights over children, Chetna wanted to know from the apex court whether the Karnataka high court was right in asking the parties to engage afresh in a custody battle over a 14-year-old girl, who she said, had been living happily with her and her husband for last five years.

Appearing for Chetna, senior advocate Arun Jaitley argued that the HC’s order directing the ex-husband, Kumar Jahgirdar, for a fresh trial appeared to be contrary to the settled legal position that custody proceedings could not be reopened unless there was substantial change in the situation.

“The proceedings attract unnecessary media glare at the instance of Jahgirdar who gets interviews published about the case which was not in the best interest of the schoolgoing child in her adolescent years,” Chetna said in her plea.

Patriarchal judges
1 Wednesday, 15 April 2009 05:41
These patriarchal judges presiding over in our courts DO NOT understand the concept of children's rights for equal access to both biological parents. The cruel system presided over by these self-righteous patriarchs asks a minor child to make choices about which parent to stay with. In all cases, the mothers who are awarded custody of the child poison the minds of the innocent children against their biological fathers. How could you ask a minor child to make such a monumental decision about its own future, both emotional and material, when the same minor child is not allowed to vote or open a bank account? This system of child custody is rotten and is against all international norms. It is about time, this thoroughly disgraced system be discarded and equal parenting rights to both parents be provided.
It is high time, the Supreme Court rights the monumental wrongs perpetrated on these hapless children who are used as pawns by the unscrupulous parent to get even with the spouse.
