Delhi High Court declines Afghan’s man plea to direct wife kids to return with him

NEW DELHI: A bench of justices S Muralidhar and Vinod Goel of Delhi High Court has declined the plea of an Afghan national to direct his wife and their two children. The court also denied him visitation rights to meet his children whenever he comes to India noting that the two, aged nine and four years, have expressed their reluctance to meet him.

Justices S Muralidhar and Vinod Goel noted that the man’s wife has obtained refugee status for herself and the two children under the mandate of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) and their refugee ID cards are valid till April 12 next year.

His counsel also sought an order regarding visitation rights to the father whenever he visits India. However, as the children were not inclined to meet him, the bench said it was not possible at this stage to issue any omnibus order regarding his visitation rights and that he may seek the relief in other appropriate proceedings available to him under the law.
