hostapd wpa_supplicant wireshark capture

I am trying to capture the communication between hostapd and wpa supplicant using wireshark. I have hostapd and wpa 
supplicant interacting with my own additional library. This library will be used to implement a new key exchange 

hostapd is configured to use wlan0 and wpa_supplicant is configured to use wlan1.

The hostapd and wpa_supplicant are able to communicate with each other and I am able to view the 
probe/authentication/association messages in Wireshark by monitoring the interfaces wlan0 and mon.wlan0.

I am also able to view the new key exchange data of my new library from hostapd to wpa supplcaint. But, the problem is 
that I am not able to view the messages sent from wpa supplicant to the hostapd. I tried to monitor messages in 
'hwsim0' as well. The observation is still the same.

Can someone provide inputs on this problem?
