The Delhi High Court on Friday ordered the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) to take steps to issue a Red Corner Notice against a US citizen who allegedly brought his teenage daughter to Nepal despite being involved in a custody battle his ex-wife. The court also ordered the agency to take steps to produce the child in court.
Noting the father’s “continued contemptuous conduct,” Justices Siddharth Mridul and Rajnish Bhatnagar said the man removed the underage girl from that court’s jurisdiction under “false pretexts,” willfully breaching the court’s coordinate bank instructions on night visits with minor children.
“…we deem it expedient to direct CBI to take steps to issue indefinite warrants for the arrest of the named persons and further to take the necessary steps to issue a Red Corner Notice, in accordance with the law, and for the purposes of the extradition treaty that exists between India and Nepal, against.” the father to secure his presence before this court,” the board said in its order.
The court granted the father’s attorney two weeks to file an answer to the mother’s habeas corpus plea and brought the matter to hearing on April 18.
