KABUL (Pajhwok): An Indian court has thrown out an Afghan woman’s petition seeking the arrival of her daughter-in-law and grandchildren in Kabul to live together with her.

While rejecting her habeas corpus plea, the Bombay High Court granted the 79-year-old grandmother visitation rights, The Hindustan Times reported on Wednesday.

A division bench of the court ruled that living with their widowed mother in India was in the best interest of the children — given the current situation in Afghanistan.

Her daughter-in-law, originally an Indian citizen, had married her son who had come to Mumbai for education in 2010, the newspaper said.

Later, the Indian woman moved to Afghanistan, where she gave birth to four sons. She lost her spouse in 2018 and then returned to India with her four sons and started living with her parents.
