According to guardian ad litem Cynthia Nunez, the attorney assigned by the court to look out for the best interests of the children, Nagarwala’s husband is the treasurer of the Farmington Hills mosque, and could face criminal charges himself involving allegations that the mosque was paying his wife to perform genital cutting procedures on young girls for years.
Nagarwala’s husband buried his face in his hands and sobbed in court today.
An attorney for the father argued the man didn’t need state supervision and that he should be allowed to freely visit his children. The lawyer said the father is no threat to the children and that it’s in their best interest to see him as often as possible to avoid experiencing more trauma.
Wayne County Judge Frank Szymanski agreed to let the father see the children unsupervised for the time being. The Nagarwala children are among several minors who face the threat of being taken away from their parents as a result of the federal investigation.
