A hearing is to be held today between Nawazuddin Siddiqui and his ex-wife Aaliya regarding the custody of the children. A bench of Justices Revati Mohite Dere and Sharmila Deshmukh is hearing the contentious case between Nawaz and Alia. In the last hearing held on March 30, the court had said that considering the future of the children, it wanted to settle the matter in-camera.
In the March 30 hearing, the court had said, “We are concerned for the children, so we are exploring the possibility of resolving the matter peacefully and amicably.” During the hearing, the bench directed Nawazuddin, Alia and both their minor children to appear before the court.
On the other hand, Aaliya says that she wants to take custody of her children at any cost. Nawazuddin’s lawyer says that he had also sent a letter to Aaliya for the settlement of the case, but there was no response from there.
Nawazuddin had sent a settlement letter to Aaliya, but despite this the matter could not be resolved. If reports are to be believed, Nawazuddin had put a condition that if he was allowed to meet his children, he would withdraw the petition filed against Aaliya in the Bombay High Court. Responding to this, Aaliya’s lawyer said that Nawaz himself does not want to meet his children, who has stopped him.
Aaliya also said that even after the divorce from Nawaz, both were in a relationship and the second child was born only after the divorce, but Nawaz never respected her. On the other hand, Nawaz’s mother accused Aaliya and said that the second child is not Nawaz’s but someone else’s. Apart from this, Aaliya also filed a rape case against Nawazuddin Siddiqui. She said that Nawaz’s mother questions her character and Nawaz keeps listening silently.
Nawazuddin had filed a defamation case of 100 crores against his brother Shamas Siddiqui and Aaliya a few days back. Nawazuddin alleged that these two together were tarnishing his image in public. In response to this, his brother Shamas said through a post on social media that he is not afraid of this defamation case.
