HC appoints mediator for dispute between Yukta Mookhey, husband

Rajiv Patil appointed as mediator in matrimonial dispute between former Miss World and husband.

Mumbai: The Bombay High Court on Monday appointed a mediator in the matrimonial dispute between former Miss World Yukta Mookhey and her estranged husband Prince Tuli.

Justice R. P. Sondurbaldota appointed senior advocate Rajiv Patil as a mediator so that the parties could arrive at an amicable settlement.

"The High Court has appointed Rajiv Patil as mediator. The first date of mediation is tomorrow (November 26)," Tuli's advocate Filji Fredrick said.

In a complaint to police in July this year, Yukta accused her husband and in-laws of subjecting her to domestic violence and harassment. She also accused Tuli of unnatural sex.

Tuli and his family approached the sessions court seeking anticipatory bail. The court granted others bail while Tuli was given interim protection from arrest.

Yukta approached the High Court, challenging the sessions court order. At an earlier hearing, the High Court had suggested that Yukta and Tuli should sit together alongwith their lawyers and resolve the dispute. But this did not work out, the court was informed.
