Thiruvananthapuram: The family court will consider on Monday the petition filed by the state government in connection with the issue related to Anupama's missing child. The petition was filed seeking a stay on the order that entrusts the rights and protection of the child, who is believed to be the baby of Anupama, with the couple from Andhra Pradesh who adopted him.
It is also stated in the plea that the investigation into the complaint lodged by parents Anupama and Ajith is underway. Until the verdict, the custody of the child will remain with the Andhra native couple.
Anupama's mother Smitha James, sister Anju, Anju's husband Arun and Anupama's father PS Jayachandran and his friends Rameshan and former councillor Anil Kumar have filed anticipatory bail pleas against the complaint lodged by Anupama claiming that the child was removed from her forcefully. The District Principal Sessions Court will consider it on October 28.
Jayachandran and six others have been booked on this. Jayachandran has not filed a bail plea yet. It is alleged in the petition that the baby was handed over to the Child Welfare Committee with Anupama's consent. The court sought a report from the Peroorkkada police on the bail plea.
