Justice R P Sondurbaldota appointed senior advocate Rajiv Patil as a mediator so that the parties could arrive at an amicable settlement.

"The High Court has appointed Rajiv Patil as mediator. The first date of mediation is on Tuesday (November 26)," Tuli's advocate Filji Fredrick said.

In a complaint to police in July this year, Yukta accused her husband and in-laws of subjecting her to domestic violence and harassment. She also accused Tuli of unnatural sex.

Tuli and his family approached the sessions court seeking anticipatory bail. The court granted others bail while Tuli was given interim protection from arrest.

Yukta approached the High Court, challenging the sessions court order.

At an earlier hearing, the High Court had suggested that Yukta and Tuli should sit together along with their lawyers and resolve the dispute. But this did not work out, the court was informed.
