The heinous crime of the father created huge outrage among the public. The Bench of Justice PV Kunhikrishnan acted upon a petition moved by the mother of the minor, a native of Kollam district.

The state government and the child welfare committee were directed to take full responsibility of the child, if the parents were not willing to assume responsibility for the baby.

“The alleged culprit is her own father. If the allegation is correct, I am ashamed of and of course, the entire society should bow it’s head for the same reason. I am sure that the long arm of our legal system will punish him in a manner known to law” The justice said.
