THE HIGH COURT OF MADHYA PRADESH
(BHUPENDRA SINGH Vs SMT. LAKSHMI SHARMA)
Gwalior, Dated : 20-04-2018
Shri Pawan Dwivedi, learned counsel for the petitioner.
Petitioner has filed this review petition seeking review of
the order dated 21-03-2018 passed in writ petition
No.2886/2017 on the ground that present petitioner who is
father of minor is stationed at Delhi, therefore there is lot of
inconvenience to meet his son at Indore. It is also
submitted that parents of the present petitioner are aged and
they are not in a position to move at Indore. Therefore,
mother of child be asked to facilitate such meeting at
In this regard, attention of this Court has been drawn to
the law laid down by the Hon’ble Supreme Court in the case
of Roxann Sharma Vs. Arun Sharma reported as (2015) 8
SCC 318 wherein in para 9 it has been held that section 26 of
the Guardian and Wards Act casts an omnibus embargo even
on a guardian of a person appointed or declared by the Court
from removing the ward from the limits of its jurisdiction.
Similarly note was taken in relation to removal of the ward by
the father without notifying or taking permission of Civil
Judge. However, in the present case facts are different when
this Court had allowed the writ petition at that time child of
petitioner was already at Indore and this Court had permitted
the petitioner along with his father and mother to meet his
child at 11 am at every working Saturday at Family Court,
Indore. Therefore, the ratio laid down in the case of Roxann
Sharma is not applicable in the facts and circumstances of the
case. So far as connectivity and distance is concerned when
this order was passed at that time also petitioner was at Delhi
and at that time, no objection was raised and even if welfare
of child is paramount consideration then petitioner along with
his parents shall meet the child at Indore.
Thus, no ground for review of the order is made out.
Petition fails and is dismissed.
