Sathish Kumar when the HCP filed by Chandrakumar, a Sri Lankan national came up for hearing. She submitted that the petitioner’s daughter is not in her custody and she was in no way connected with the case. Meeting the press post the hearing, Bhuvaneshwari said, "I am unnecessarily being pulled into this case. It is a problem concerning a single individual.
