petition is directed primarily against her husband who is impleaded as
respondent No. 4.


2. In the petition as originally filed, the petitioner had also impleaded
Mr. Ajey Lohia, father of respondent No. 4, as respondent No.5. The reason

the minor daughter of the petitioner and respondent no.4 – Baby Raina, was
with respondent No.5 and his wife at Dubai, while the petitioner and
respondent no. 4 were in India. In terms of this Court‟s order dt.
08.02.2018, Baby Raina was brought from Dubai to Delhi and then she was
in the custody of respondent No.4. Consequently, vide order dated
19.02.2018, respondent No. 5 Ajey Lohia was deleted from the array of
parties, on his own request.
