Former Miss World and actress Yukta Mookhey has lodged a complaint against her husband Prince Tuli for alleged domestic violence, police said today.
"In her complaint, Mookhey alleged that she had often been beaten and troubled by her husband Prince Tuli. A non-cognisable offence has been registered after her complaint," said Amboli police station's senior inspector Harishchandra Vhatkar. The officer refused to divulge further details.
A non-cognizable offence is an offence in which the police can neither register an FIR, investigate, nor effect arrest without the express permission or direction from the court.
Another officer said that the actress had lodged the complaint nearby two months ago and she may also approach the court seeking punitive action against her businessman husband.
Mookhey was crowned Miss World in December 1999 at the Olympia theatre in London at the age of 20. She later acted in several Bollywood movies. Tuli is a New York-based businessman and financial consultant, whose family owns a business empire in central India with interests in logistics, hotels, malls, education, and construction equipment.
