Father seeks equal access to kids in divorce cases

Dr V Ravi Chandran, who was working at the University of Florida, is in India for the past two years trying to locate his son, who, he believes, is in India.
The Hyderabad-based scientist’s cause has been taken up by a Bangalore-based NGO, the Child Rights Initiative for Shared Parenting (CRISP), the first of its kind all-India organisation fighting for parents who are deprived of access to their children during custody disputes.
Ravi Chandran said his wife had kidnapped his son and brought him to India despite an American court order giving him the custody of his son. He said the issue of parental kidnapping of children needed to be highlighted and justice done to the deprived parent.
The CRISP urged the Government of India and all the state governments to amend or make fresh laws to grant equal access to both  parents in the legal battles for the custody of their children. It demanded that shared parenting should be made mandatory.
