HC sends girl to remand home

Ramalal, a resident of K G Halli had filed a petition before court to produce his missing daughter. The girl, who had gone missing from May 3, 2010 from her house, claimed in her affidavit that she has married Mohammed Sameer Khan on May 19, 2010 and embraced
Islam. The police found the couple at Denkanikote near Hosur.

C R Abdul Rasheed, counsel for petitioner said the affidavit refers to several Islamic verses, the meanings of which were not known to the girl. He submitted that since she had been with the boy for several days, her statements reflect support to him, and cannot be believed.

He said the statement and the documents submitted by the girl have surfaced after the complaint and requested the court to scrutinise the documents. The girl failed to answer as the court sought to know the meaning of her statements in the affidavit. The division bench headed by Justice Manjunath sent the girl to the remand home.

Hearing adjourned

The High Court on Monday adjourned by two more weeks, the hearing of the petition seeking to quash the transfer of Principals of Bishop Cotton Boys and Girls School.  The two principals were issued transfer orders by Bishop Vasanth Kumar on May 7.
