NEW DELHI: The Delhi police commissioner was asked by the Delhi high court on Wednesday to provide security to a blind man and his daughter after they were allegedly threatened by the man’s former wife.
Directing the police to file a status report by July 23, a vacation bench of Justice V K Jain ordered the Delhi police chief to give security to the man and his 14-year-old daughter. The bench issued notice to the ex-wife and her father to respond to the man’s plea where he had alleged his ex-wife had been threatening them ever since he had brought back his daughter.
In his petition, Delhi resident Syed Mohammed said that he had married his ex-wife in 1997 and the girl was born in 1998. Just after the birth of their daughter, the couple separated, he added.
According to the man, it was mutually agreed at the time of divorce that the custody of their daughter would be given to the father after two-three years. However, this did not happen and the daughter was staying with her mother till last month.
Seeking protection, the man alleged that his daughter would call him from Bangalore saying that her mother did not treat her well and she was not allowed to study.
