By the connotation "aunt" what do you say about the relation of minor with the said "aunt" as Chahi, Mami, Bua, etc.
What is the interest of aunt?
How the Court can ensure interest of minor is protected and safer in the hands of "aunt" when natural/biological father/guardian is alive?
Generally custody of minor cannot be granted to aunt while parents are alive/available.
