The general is that the custody of daughter will generally go to the mother, but there has been instances in which it was held by the Court that the custody of the child will be given to guardian the power is given to court in the case of A.V. it was held by the court that dominate consideration would be welfare of child in appointing the guardian.

A.V. Venkatakrishnaiah v. S.A. Sathyakumar, AIR 1978 Kant 220.
