Child’s wishes considered paramount by SC India

Paediatrician mommy kidnaps children but child tells judge she wants to stay with father. Lower courts grant custody to dad, mommy fights all the way to the Supreme court, tries to use all kinds of arguments (e.g. woman needed during puberty stage of child, parental alienation has made child say that she does not want to stay w/ mommy etc) but to no avail. Two key points in this case

1. child stated wish to stay w/ father

2. mom had not made any damaging allegations against father of child abuse
