A 27-year-old mother from the Gaya region of Bihar is hoping that she will soon be reunited with her baby, who was taken from her after her husband was allegedly killed in 2015 when he was only five months old.
The police discovered Munni Devi’s seven-year-old son with her in-laws, and he is currently in a government home. His “death certificates” were repeatedly presented before the Patna High Court.
After being released from prison, where she was being held in connection with the suspected murder of her husband, the lady petitioned the Patna High Court for custody of her kid.
To show the court that her child is still alive, she presented the court with recent photos of him.
Her attorney, Avinash Kumar Singh, stated that a division bench made up of justices Ahsanuddin Amanullah and Purnendu Singh “in its oral ruling on September 12 indicated that the court is primarily concerned with the protection of the kid.”
The youngster was found after the court’s directive and is housed in the Gaya Child Welfare Home.
“After the next hearing on October 11, I will only be able to see my kid again thanks to the high court’s involvement. When I was jailed, my five-month-old kid was split from me. “Over the phone, Munni Devi said PTI.
However, the court did not set a new hearing date for the matter until October 11 in its most recent ruling and did not specifically say that the petitioner would be able to reunite with her son on that day.
She was informed that her kid had passed very soon after she was put in jail when she asked for custody of him.
Munni Devi claimed that her in-laws had repeatedly presented a counterfeit death certificate to the court with the help of the police, municipal officials, and local panchayat.
The senior superintendent has notified the high court of police for Gaya that a false document report (FIR) has been filed.
The mother said, “But I knew my kid is alive, and I supplied proof to support my assertion.
The court noted that the youngster “whose image was presented on record” is likely a victim of circumstance.
