The Delhi court accepted all of Dhawan’s allegations because his wife failed to contest or defend herself.
Due to mental abuse, cricket player Shikhar Dhawan was granted a divorce from his estranged wife Aesha Mukherji on Wednesday by a local court in Delhi. All of the accusations made by Dhawan against his wife in the divorce petition were accepted by the court.
Judge Harish Kumar reportedly accepted the accusations because Mukherji either didn’t dispute them or didn’t have a strong defense, according to Bar and Bench. Kumar claimed that by making Dhawan live apart from their son for years, Mukerji caused him emotional suffering.
The son’s permanent custody was not granted by the court, but Dhawan was permitted to see him for a set amount of time—including an overnight stay in Australia and India with him and his family. The cricket player can video contact his son to talk.
In addition, Mukerji was ordered by the court to visit the child in India for at least half of the break from school.
In Dawan’s appeal, it is said that Mukerji first promised the cricket player that they would live with him in India. Nevertheless, she was unable to fulfill her obligations to her ex-husband and their two daughters.
The court also considered Dhawan’s argument that his wife forced him to give her 99% ownership of three houses he had purchased in Australia using the cricketer’s money. In addition, she forced him to share ownership of other assets.
The court determined that Mukerji did not refute this assertion or any other claims.
