The feud within the family of former defence minister George Fernandes reached the Delhi High Court on Tuesday.
Admitting a petition filed by his brothers Richard, Aloyscious and Michael, the court on Tuesday restrained his estranged wife Leila Kabir and son Sean from taking 79-year-old Fernandes out of Delhi.
The brothers approached the HC when they apprehended that Kabir wanted to take him to the US where she lives.
The once firebrand socialist leader is undergoing treatment for Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease and is living with Kabir and Sean.
Alleging that they were not being allowed to meet Fernandes, the brothers have sought “unfettered access” to him.
Denying that they were after his property, the brothers said in the petition: “we do not want any share of the assets of Fernandes and are only concerned about his well being”.
Seeking Kabir’s reply by April 26, Justice V K Shali has for the time being restrained Kabir and Sean from taking him outside the Capital.
