High Court transferred the Divorce Petition from Sangrur to Bathinda.= when the husband is taking care of the child who is nine years old and is suffering from malignant disease, in our opinion, the High Court should have used its discretion in favour of the petitioner-husband. We, therefore, set aside the impugned order.

                                                              NON-REPORTABLE

                        IN THE SUPREME COURT OF INDIA
                        CIVIL APPELLATE JURISDICTION

                    (ARISING OUT OF SLP(C) NO.15945/2015)


      AMANDEEP GOYAL                                    APPELLANT(S)

3.    The appellant-huaband has filed the present appeal by way  of  special

High Court of Punjab and Haryana at Chandigarh,  in and by  which  the  High
Court transferred the Divorce Petition from Sangrur to Bathinda.
4.    Looking at the peculiar facts of the case, more particularly when  the
husband is taking care of the child who is nine years old and  is  suffering
from malignant disease, in our opinion, the High Court should have used  its
discretion in favour of the petitioner-husband.  We,  therefore,  set  aside
the impugned order.
5.    The case bearing Regn. No. DMC/314/2015 (Filing  No.1256/2015)  titled

other court of competent jurisdiction.
