The Bombay High Court (HC) has ordered a Canadian citizen to either resolve the dispute with his wife mutually or the law will eventually take its own course. The Bombay HC has asked the Toronto-based Indian NRI to return and settle his matrimonial disputes, warning that otherwise the law would catch up with him.
The judge commented on hearing a contempt petition filed by a wife, requesting that her husband is not complying with the orders of a Canadian court to pay her the maintenance arrears.
A bench of Justices V M Kanade and Shalini Phansalkar-Joshi had dictated an order directing the extradition of the Toronto-based person, saying that the “long arm of the law would catch up with him”.
The judges said however, they would ideally wait first for the mutual settlement, and if he will not comply with the orders, the court will be issuing the red corner notice against him for his extradition.
