A 17-year-old girl, who had eloped and married a man who had 18 criminal cases against him, has been sent back to her parent’s house.
After interviewing her, a division bench of Justice D.B. Bhosale and Justice A.R. Joshi, directed her to return to her parents’.
The court has even restrained Kishor Angre from meeting the girl. He is not supposed to call her on phone or contact her, said the judges.
To prevent their meeting, the court has allowed her parents to take the girl to Kolhapur, where her uncle lives. However, the court has asked them to ensure that the girl is present in the next hearing on April 19.
Last week, the court sent the girl to a children's home after additional public prosecutor Sangeeta Shinde said that Angre has 18 criminal cases lodged against him including a murder case, possession of arms and one under the stringent Maharashtra Control of Organised Crime Act.
After the girl disappeared on February 15, her father had lodged a complaint with the police alleging that Angre had kidnapped his daughter.
Both were caught. Angre has approached the HC seeking quashing of the FIR against him for allegedly kidnapping the girl.
In August 2009, they had eloped and the father had filed missing complaint. The police had then traced them to Navi Mumbai and brought them back.
