Chetana Kumble retains custody of daughter

Staff Reporter

BANGALORE: The Karnataka High Court has disposed of a petition by Jagirdar, former husband of Chetana Kumble, relating to the custody rights of his daughter.

Mr. Jagirdar had moved the High Court seeking custody of his daughter who was living with Ms. Chetana after they divorced. Subsequently, Ms. Chetana married cricket player Anil Kumble.

Mr. Jagirdar, in his petition,said after his daughter shifted residence along with Mr. Kumble and Ms. Chetana from Basavanagudi to Banashankari, her school was too far. Second, Ms. Chetana and Mr. Kumble have a child. He had therefore sought custody of his daughter. Terming the two reasons as frivolous, Justice Rammohan Reddy disposed of the petition and directed the family court to pass order on the issue.
