MYSORE: Jayalakshmipuram police produced Prakash MP Swamy before the Second JMFC Court on Tuesday after which he was released on bail.

Police sought Swamy’s judicial custody for 14 days to interrogate him while Asha was released on bail after obtaining a personal surety.

Inspector Krishnappa N G said they have booked Swamy under Section 24(i) of Juvenile Justice (Care and Protection of Children) Act 2000 for pushing his child to beg for alms and Asha under Sec 24(ii) of the Act for abetment to commit wrongful act.

Managing trustee of Credit-I, an NGO, Varsha lodged the complaint. Meanwhile, the girl was handed over to Child Welfare Committee (CWC) on Monday night and was taken to the school on Tuesday for the Social Studies exam.

“After returning to the Child Home, she expressed willingness to return to her father, but we have to follow some procedures before releasing her.

Hence, we will take a decision once we summon Swamy and Asha besides counselling the girl. We understand the difficulties experienced by the girl,” said CWC chairman N T Venkatesh.
