Mumbai: A father can seek visitation rights to his child under the Domestic Violence Act if the child is in the mother's custody, the Bombay High Court has ruled.

Justice Prakash Naik dismissed an application last Friday filed by a woman challenging a sessions court order granting visitation rights to her estranged husband. The woman in her plea claimed that the sessions court had erred in passing such order as under section 21 of the Protection of Women from Domestic Violence Act, only an aggrieved woman can seek custody or visitation of her child.
