Girl not property who can be donated: Bombay High Court after father donates daughter to a ‘Baba’

In light of these developments, Justice Kankanwadi expressed her concern about the future of the minor girl.

“in view of such document coming forward, (the Court) can’t shut the eyes,” the judge said.

The Court added in the order that “it can be said that in view of the actions taken by the father of the girl in executing “Danpatra”, this Court is required to interfere. This is in view of the future of the girl and she should not be driven to do any illegal activities,”

The Court directed the Child Welfare Committee to “hold inquiry on expeditious basis in respect of the girl and to find out whether she is a fit person to be declared as a child in need of care and protection”

On January 21, 2022, the CWC submitted its report and the matter will be heard again on February 4, 2022.
