12-yr-old girl files petition against father
Posted June 29, 2009on:
We cant blame this girl. We should blame the idiots who made such laws which is specifically made to settle personal scores. These kind of unconstitutional laws should be repealed immediately. Even the study conducted by Govt of Kerala says PWDVA contradicts with Civil Procedure Code and also violates basic civil rights. But this UNIFEM funded family destruction program is still on going. We should put an end to it at the earliest.
A 12-year-old girl has filed a petition against her father, under Section 12 of the Protection of Women from Domestic Violence Act, 2005. The girl has filed the petition through her mother. According to the petitioner Pritam Bhatti, mother of the girl, Pritam and her husband Rabindra Hazari are divorced.
While Hazari is a resident of Mumbai, Bhatti is based in Pune. Their 12-year-old daughter is at present studying at a boarding school in Nilgiri, Tamil Nadu.
The petition says she doesn’t want to study at the boarding school. Her elder sister, who was also a student there, has shifted to Pune for higher studies. So the mother got the girl admitted to a school in the city.
Advocate Asim Sarode, defence counsel for Bhatti, said, “Rabindra, who is the joint custodian of the girl took an order from the family court at Nagpur which prohibited Pritam from admitting the girl to the Pune school. The court directed that the girl should not be admitted to any other school without her father’s permission.”
