Nagpur News:Adding a new twist to their estranged relationship, former Miss World Yukta Mookhey who has filed a case against her Nagpur based husband Prince Tuli and her in-laws, has told the court that Tuli has some “inappropriate” videos of her in his possession and he has threatened her to leak those clips. Mookhey has appealed to seize those videos before it is put to misuse. Her lawyer has also asked for the arrest of Prince Tuli.
Appearing on Mookhey’s behalf, her lawyer Taubon Irani opposed the anticipatory bail application filed by Tuli’s lawyers, Avinash Gupta and Filji Frederick.
Tuli applied for anticipatory bail after Mookhey filed a case against him and her in-laws at Amboli police station under sections 498 A (cruelty), 406 (criminal breach of trust) and 377 (unnatural sex) on July 3. The case was later shifted to Bandra police station upon Mookhey’s casted doubt over Amboli police investigation.
In the bail application, Tuli’s lawyers have contested that the case is already an year old. “Right after leaving her home, she filed a domestic violence case in a family court. Then why did it take her an entire year to file an FIR? She had been living separately for a year,” the lawyers questioned.
“He has threatened Yukta that he will expose certain videos of when they were newly married. Hence, his application should be denied,” her lawyer said. The court will pass an order on the plea on Saturday.
The other grounds for seeking bail were that though Mookhey had accused Tuli of sodomy, there was no evidence to prove that, and that Tuli had been cooperating with the cops. They also said that Mookhey had taken all that was hers when she left.
Tuli had earlier alleged that Mookhey had left with Rs 35 lakh in cash. Her lawyer Irani, however said, “Who keeps that kind of cash at home?” Mookhey then said Tuli should be taken into custody immediately, as he had threatened to leak her video. “It can outrage a woman’s modesty,” she told the court.
She also alleged that though she took most of her belongings, she got only Rs 2 lakh out of the Rs 2 crore that she had brought as “stree dhan”. She also referred to a special court’s order, restraining Tuli from meeting his son. “He has flouted the court’s order in the past. He is capable of doing it again. His psychological evaluation is pending in that court,” Irani told the court.
The public prosecutor asked for Tuli’s custody, saying he managed relief from the court on July 14 without anyone’s knowledge and even though he has been attending the police station ever since, he needs to be taken into custody considering the gravity of the charges against him.
