Quoting to the media, Arun alleged,
When I come to meet my the children, she sends women Home Guards to push me out off the premises.
Continuing further the IPS officer said,
I came to Bengaluru on Friday for a meeting and I took one day’s casual leave to meet my children. My wife lives in Vasanth Nagar and is not allowing me to meet my son and daughter. She called the police control room to complain that I was harassing her. She also spread rumours about me that I was avoiding the children and not coming to meet them at all.
This is the common drama that takes place after separation and during the course of divorce proceedings. The custody of children get awarded to mothers by default and the fathers are left literally begging to see their own kids. When they make a noise about not being allowed to be with their children, the women in most cases do a rebound, trying to allege and prove that it is infact the father who is most irresponsible and has failed in his duties.

If a man if living in a different city, it is virtually impossible for him to gain any access despite court orders, since there is no end to the number of excuses a woman makes to ensure no verbal or physical contact between the father and his children.
Shame on our biased judiciary which makes a monster out of a separated father.
