In response to Dwarakadas's offer, Sandeep's counsel SU Kamdar said, "I'm willing to provide everything, but I have to protect my interests."
Justice SJ Kathawala of the Bombay HC agreed that the parties should settle the matter through mediation, and has also agreed to meet the father-son duo on either Friday or Saturday to take the matter forward. The GL Raheja group has been caught in a legal battle after Gopal filed a suit alleging that Sandeep was trying to usurp the business.
Dwarakadas added that Gopal's intention was to keep 36% of the shares owned by him, while giving Sandeep 46%. Currently, Sandeep and his family own 58% shares. Each of Gopal's two daughters would be given 8.5% shares.
"Whatever he [Gopal] owns will ultimately go to Sandeep. Let us not destroy the whole empire in the process," Dwarakadas contended. Justice Kathawala was also told that a builder, who is a common confidant, was also trying to mediate the issue.
