RBN Web Desk: Veteran actress Moushumi Chatterjee and her husband Jayant Mukherjee have moved the Bombay High Court, seeking access to her daughter Payel Mehta, who has been in a comatose state for some time now. Senior counsel Beni Chatterjee, appearing on behalf of Moushumi, told the media that the petition has been filed before a division bench comprising justices SV Kotwal and BP Dharmadhikari.
Beni Chatterjee also informed that his client has sought an order directing her son-in-law Dicky Mehta to allow Moushumi attend Payel.
The court has directed Dicky to file his affidavit in this regard.
According to Moushumi’s petition, Payel and Dicky exchanged wedding vows in 2010. Payel later suffered a major illness. She was rushed to the hospital last year when her condition deteriorated. Moushumi, Jayant, and other family members took care of Payel, the writ petition mentioned.
Moushumi claimed in the petition that Dicky and his family released Payel—who was already comatose—from the hospital and has since treated her at their suburban Khar residence. None of her family members have since been allowed to meet her, the 70-year old actress claimed.
