(By Mr. OMKAR BASAVA PRABHU, ADV., FOR
Mr. R. SRINIVAS, ADV.,)
This Writ Petition is filed under Articles 226 227 of the
Constitution of India, praying to quash the impugned order dated
4.1.2013 passed by the III Additional Prl. Judge, Family Court,
Bangalore in G WC No.35/2011 on interim application No.IV filed
by the respondent under Section 12 of the Guardian and Wards
Act vide Annexure-A and etc.
This Writ Petition coming on for Preliminary hearing in ‘B’
group this day, the Court made the following:-
Sri.Prabhugouda B.Tumbigi, learned counsel for
Sri.Omkar Basava Prabhu, learned counsel for
Sri.R.Srinivas, learned counsel for the respondent.
2. The petition is admitted for hearing. With
consent of the learned counsel for the parties, the same
is heard finally.
3. In this petition, the petitioner inter alia seeks
quashment of the order dated 04.01.2013 passed by
the Family Court in G and WC No.35/2011 on an interim
application filed by the respondent under Section 12 of
the Guardians and Wards Act, 1890. A Bench of this
Court had granted an ad interim order on 22.01.2013.
The aforesaid interim order has remained in force for a
period of more than 6 years. Therefore, I am not
inclined to adjudicate the validity of the order dated
04.01.2013 at this point of time and I deem it
appropriate to dispose of the petition with a direction to
the Family Court to conclude the proceeding in G and
WC No.35/2011 which is pending since 2011, in
accordance with law within six months from today. Till
the matter is decided by the Family Court, the ad
interim order granted on 22.01.2013 shall continue.
Accordingly, the petition is disposed of.
