controvert the allegations in the petition, the aforesaid petition

District Judge, Family Court, Sonepat is ordered to be withdrawn from the
said Court and is transferred to the Court of Civil Judge (Senior Division)
Panipat exercising the powers under Guardians and Wards Act, 1890 for
disposal in accordance with law.
