Mumbai: The Bombay High Court has allowed the legal heirs of Goolam Vahanvati, the former Attorney General, to find an amicable solution to their dispute over the family properties by October 28.  Vahanvati, an eminent lawyer, died last month. His properties include houses in Mumbai, Pune and Delhi, vintage cars, investments in shares and fixed deposits in banks.  His daughter Sholeen Carrimjee has filed a petition against her step-mother Nafisa, nominated by Vahanvati as the major beneficiary of his estate. Sholeen has claimed a share in her father’s estate under the Muslim personal law. Their lawyers had made a statement on Thursday before the vacation judge of the High Court, Justice A S Gadkari, that they were trying to arrive at an amicable settlement.
