HC asks Registry to trace old record of inter-country adoption
Mumbai: The Bombay High Court has asked its Registry to produce within a week the 35-year-old record of a psychologist of Indian origin who had alleged that she was
kidnapped and given in adoption to a Dutch couple in 1975.
The court was informed by police that the records may be lying in the shelves of the record room since 1975.
Hearing a petition filed by Dutch psychologist Daksha Van Dijck, Justice BH Marlapalle asked the Registry to trace the file and produce it before the court by August 9.
Daksha had moved the court seeking a direction to Police Commissioner to register an FIR against Shraddhashram Mahilashram. The petitioner said she came to India in search
of her biological parents and discovered that she may have been kidnapped and given in adoption when she was a child.
As per law, permission of the High Court has to be obtained if a child has to be given in adoption to a couple in a foreign country.
The police filed an affidavit saying they tried to trace the records of the petitioner and found that the file had been submitted to the High Court 35 years ago before the child was given in adoption to the Dutch couple.
Thereupon the court directed the Registry to produce the records within a week.
The matter is likely to come up for hearing tomorrow.
