Settle case with mom, court tells Mongia

Settle case with mom, court tells Mongia
MUMBAI: A Mumbai court has asked former cricketer Nayan Mongia to settle a domestic violence case with his mother, saying that it involved his family and asking him to appear before the Lok Adalat on September 16, 2012. 

"We are ready to settle as we do not want this matter to drag on," said a source close to Mongia's mother Gyandevi (69). Mongia's lawyer Kshitij Mehta alleged the case was lodged at the instigation of Mongia's siblings. "The court suggested we settle the issue, but there is no direction. We will consider it," Mehta said. 

In her application, Gyandevi claimed that after her husband's death in December 2010, she was ill-treated by her son and daughter-in-law. She was forced to shift to Mumbai where her daughter lived in March, 2011. 

Gyandevi had a bypass surgery and has five stents in her heart. She said she spent around Rs 7-8 lakh for her treatment and alleged physical and mental violence and sought the court's direction to Mongia to pay her the money she spent on her treatment and a monthly maintenance. 

She alleged Mongia refused to give her the property her husband bequeathed to her. Mongia filed a case challenging the will. Mongia's lawyers challenged the jurisdiction of a Mumbai court to hear the case as Mongia and his mother lived in Baroda. The magistrate, though, observed that the Mumbai court could hear the case.
