The Supreme Court had recently proclaimed an order that had granted custody of a particular child to a certain citizen of Kenya, with origins in India after finding out that fraud had been carried out on the court and had a very unclean approach to it because of suppressed material facts.
The Court had also clearly declared in its earlier order wherein the father was granted custody who actually carried out fraud thus deeming it to be an illegal act that was void ab initio. After very careful observation that the party had defied certain conditions imposed by the Court because they took the child to Kenya right after securing his custody, the Court also directed the Central Bureau of Investigation to initiate certain proceedings in order to secure and provide the child’s custody to his mother.
It is very essential that any party approaching the Court and judge must come with clean and virtuous hands, especially even more so in matters of child custody. Any actions that fall under fraudulent conduct especially in matters of the custody of a minor is said to be under the orders of the Court and thus would totally nullify the trust element reposed by the Court with respect to the concerned person.
