Gurgaon chief judicial magistrate (CJM) Ravneet Garg on Thursday refused to tell the court of civil judge Atul Kumar Marya the name of the school where his daughters study.

CJM's counsel Vishal Garg Narwana told the court the school's name was not being revealed as Garg feared about the life of daughters - Aasma, 4, and Adiva, 3 - and, moreover, Geetanjali's parents could create nuisance at the school.

In the last hearing on August 26, the court had asked the CJM to reveal the name of the school as his in-laws Om Prakash Aggarwal and Sheelawati Aggarwal alleged that the girls had not been going to any school. The Aggarwals have been fighting for the custody of the girls after the murder of their daughter Geetanjali on July 17 in Gurgaon, where the CJM is facing a CBI probe. He was recently questioned by the investigating agency in the case too.

Geetanjali's parents, seeking girls' custody, have submitted in their petition that both girls would get a sigh of relief with them as their mother was "murdered at the hands of Ravneet Garg and his parents".

The Aggarwals said girls were in shock and had been confined to a room in the house of Garg's parents in Panchkula, while Garg was posted in Gurgaon. They said the girls would get a better life and good company of their cousins in their custody.

The court was informed that they had not been allowed to meet the girls since Geetanjali died. There are allegations that dowry demanded at the time of marriage in 2007 and and Geetanjali was tortured.
