On Thursday, both the lawyers representing the divorced couple went back and forth before a bench of Justices Dere and Sharmila U Deshmukh.
Siddiqui’s lawyer Adnan Shaikh said he had sent Aaliya the terms of the proposed consent, but she did not want to settle. On the other hand, Aaliya’s lawyer Chaitanya Puraankar revealed that there was nothing for his client in the consent form and hence there was disagreement.
Shaikh also requested the bench that Aaliya should allow the children to attend school in the UAE after she went missing for two months. However, Purankar claimed that he was attending it online, which Shaikh denied.
Justice Mohite-Dere said, “We are also concerned about the children.”
