The long pending legal war between Nagpur based business scion Prince Tuli and his estranged wife former Miss World Yukta Mookhey saw a pleasant turn on Monday when an attempt was made to resolve their differences that surfaced up in public domain. And this time the patch up initiative was made by none other than the Honorable Bombay High Court Judge itself.
Bombay High Court Justice Sadhna Jadhav took time off to hold separate meetings with both Tuli and Mookhey in her chamber on Monday evening. She also spoke to their lawyers who later told the media that the judge suggested the couple to try and come out of their marital woes and live happily together.
The matter will be heard on October 14. Meanwhile, the HC has asked both the sides to sit and attempt to reconcile the differences.
The HC initiative came on an anticipatory bail application filed by Tuli, seeking protection from arrest in a criminal case lodged by Mookhey. In July, Mookhey had lodged an FIR accusing Tuli of committing unnatural sex and alleged that Tuli and her in-laws had subjected her to cruelty and criminal breach of trust.
The trial court had initially remarked that no case of harassment and cruelty under Section 498-A of the IPC had been made out. However,the HC did not agree to the view and said the trial judge did not seem to have considered the 15 non-cognizable offences, proceedings under the Domestic Violence Act and two other complaints filed by Mookhey.
