A sessions court on Friday extended the interim relief granted to the husband and in-laws of former Miss World Yukta Mookhey, observing that the investigation was still at a very preliminary stage.
Mookhey has accused her husband Prince Tuli of unnatural sex and her in-laws of
cruelty and criminal breach of trust among other offences in a complaint filed with suburban Amboli police station on July 3.
"The investigation is still at a very preliminary stage," observed judge DA Dholakiya, while adjourning the case till August 20.
Tuli's lawyer Filji Ferdrick argued that his client and his family members were available for investigation and had cooperated with the police so far, so they need not be arrested.
Ferdrick also contended that Mookhey was living separately for the past one year and there was no explanation as to why she filed the complaint so late.
Mookhey's lawyer told the court her phone was in Tuli's possession and it had some videos of the couple, which she fears he might make public.
