HYDERABAD: A two-judge chamber of the Telangana Superior Court on Monday dismissed a child custody claim. The Chamber of Judge Abhinand Kumar Shavili and Judge Pulla Karthik heard the petition from Zarina Navreen of Bahadurpura, the mother of a minor child who needed to be fathered and was living with the father. The court found that the petitioner and respondent chose to separate in Saudi Arabia and later moved to India. Given the child’s future, the bank questioned whether there was any room for compromise. It rejected the petition and granted both of them freedom to contact the Legal Services Board to resolve the issue.

HC takes up the former collector’s election petition
Judge K. Lakshman of the Telangana Supreme Court on Monday granted an election motion to a request by retired Assistant Bailiff M. Bixapathi to have his arrest warrant recalled and suspended. The arrest warrant was issued against him for “failing to cooperate with the Attorney General and failing to appear before him for evidence.” The High Court had issued the arrest warrant, which was not executed. The court ordered Malkajgiri DCP to be present and explain whether or not the warrant was executed and, if not, the reasons why. According to the previous arrangement, Malkajgiri DCP D. Janaki was present in court. The judge waived the presence of the police officer and ordered Bixapathi to cooperate with the Advocate Commissioner in taking evidence.
