22 December 2009
CHENNAI: The custody battle over an NRI child took a new turn on Monday with Dr V Ravichandran, the former husband of Vijayasree Voora, lodging a complaint at the Pondy Bazaar police station saying that she was missing along with their son.
In his complaint, Ravichandran said that the Supreme Court had ordered Voora to take their son Aditya to be produced before the New York family court within a fortnight of November 17, 2009, failing which, the court would restore the child's custody to him. He said: "Vijayasree Voora has willfully and knowingly flouted the order of the Supreme Court and has absconded from the arms of law. I apprehend a threat to the life of my minor son Aditya. She has always disrespected the court.''
Vijayasree, on the other hand, told TOI that she was very much in New Delhi. "I have informed the CBI and the courts of this," she said. She claimed her husband was trying to take the child away to the US. She said her visa formalities were not complete and that she was in the process of making an affidavit to the Supreme Court seeking time to leave for the US.
Dr Ravichandran, in his complaint, said there was no trace of Aditya or Vijayasree at the addresses given by the latter to the CBI. All registered documents sent to the two addresses in Chennai had been returned, he claimed.
Ravichandran, who was present at the Pondy Bazaar police station with his mother and volunteers of the Save Indian Family Foundation, said Vijayasree had flouted the Supreme Court order asking her to to return to the US and resolve her dispute with him for the custody of their son Aditya.
"The CBI should have kept track of her movements but failed. She disappeared on December 18 and now I have come to Chennai looking for her. I am worried for my son's safety," Ravichandran said.
Later, Vijayashree's father Sriman Narayana Voora told TOI that his daughter had spoken to the T Nagar assistant commissioner of police and informed him of her whereabouts and that she was in the process of completing her visa formalities.
