petition under the Guardian and Wards Act, 1890 at Hoshiarpur. Two other

Considering the difficulty expressed by the petitioner and the
fact that her case for custody of minor children is already pending at
Hoshiarpur Courts, petition filed under Section 9 of Hindu Marriage Act,
1955 by the respondent titled as Varinder Kumar vs. Rajinder Kaur pending
in the Court of learned District Judge, Ludhiana is withdrawn from the said
Court and is transferred to learned District Judge, Hoshiarpur, who may
retain the same himself or entrust it to a Court of competent jurisdiction.
Present petition stands allowed accordingly.
Since the main case has been allowed, therefore, the pending
CM, if any, also stands disposed of.
