NRI woman who eluded cops for 2 years traced to Chennai

The CBI team found the mother and child when they were shifting hotels in Chennai on Saturday and brought them to Delhi by flight, official sources said here.

The duo was produced at the residence of Justice Tarun Chatterjee of the Supreme Court, who directed the agency to keep them for two days and produce them before the court on Tuesday. The apex court had directed the CBI on August 29 to investigate the matter and submit a report after the police of Tamil Nadu, Karnataka and Andhra Pradesh could not trace the mother Vijayashree Voora, who is said to be mentally unstable, and on the run with her child Aditya Chandran.

The bench of Justices Tarun Chatterjee and R M Lodha had said CBI officials should be given all powers to trace the child and if necessary, issue a non-bailable warrant against the mother who was divorced from her husband V Ravichandran.

“It is almost two years since the notice was issued by this court but the child could not be produced. Respondent no 6 (mother) is said to be mentally unstable and running around with the child from one state to another. In the peculiar and extraordinary circumstances such as the present one, we are of the view that CBI may be assigned the task of tracing minor Adithya Chandran and ensure his production before this Court,”the bench had observed while directing the CBI to trace the mother-son.

The apex court passed the directions on a petition by the boy’s father Ravichandran as Tamil Nadu, Karnataka and AP admitted that despite their best efforts they could not trace the mother and the child for the past two years.
