A sessions court on Friday extended the interim relief granted to husband and the in-laws of former Miss World Yukta Mookhey observing that the investigation was still at a very preliminary stage. 

"The investigation is still at a very preliminary stage," observed judge D A Dholakiya while adjourning the case till August 20. 

The court also directed Mookhey's husband Prince Tuli and his parents to go to police station daily till July 31 and later twice a week till the next date of hearing. 

Mookhey has accused her husband of unnatural sex and her in-laws of cruelty and criminal breach of trust among other offences in a complaint filed with suburban Amboli police station on July 3. 

Tuli's lawyer, advocate Filji Ferdrick argued that his client and his family members were available for investigation and had cooperated with the police so far, so they need not be arrested. 

Further, Mookhey was living separately for the past one year and there was no explanation as to why she filed the complaint so late, the lawyer said. 

While Mookhey's lawyer told the court that her phone was in Tuli's possession, and it had some videos of the couple which she fears he might make public.
