Court asks woman not to poison son’s mind against fatherJuly 2nd, 2008 - 10:18 pm ICT by IANS
New Delhi, July 2 (IANS) Hearing a matrimonial dispute, the Delhi High Court Wednesday asked a woman not to tutor her five-year-old son against her husband. The court expressed its displeasure over the woman’s alleged bid to prevent her son from meeting his father despite the court’s order.
“The manner in which the boy answered the court’s queries clearly reflects that he has been well tutored by you to speak against the father,” said Justice S.N. Dhingra, adding that she should not poison the child’s mind.
A family court has granted the child’s custody to her and allowed her estranged husband to meet the boy every Sunday between 1 p.m. and 4 p.m.
While Justice Dhingra asked the woman if an arrangement could be made for a meeting between the father and the son, the boy started crying in the packed courtroom and said, “I do not want to go.”
The woman’s husband had moved the high court alleging his wife had violated a court order by not allowing him to meet the boy.
After much drama in the court, the judge reserved order on the case.
