Former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah Monday requested the Delhi High Court to conduct in-camera proceedings on his plea seeking divorce from his estranged wife Payal Abdullah. Omar’s counsel made an oral submission before a bench of Justices Siddharth Mridul and Deepa Sharma, which, however, did not pass any order on the plea.
Omar’s counsel submitted that in-camera proceedings be conducted in the matter as it was a family matter and whatever happens in court, it is published by the media. The plea was opposed by Payal’s counsel who said such a prayer was earlier declined by the court.
The court listed the matter for further hearing on July 1.
