They said that the case was set for mention before lower Syariah Court judge Ab Malek Awang.
Both Nurul Izzah and Raja Ahamd Shahrir Iskandar were not available for comment on the alleged divorce action.
When contacted at around 11.40am Thursday, Nurul Izzah's phone rang twice and the line was cut after which the phone was switched off.
