Cuttack: The Biju Janata Dal (BJD) MP from Kendrapara, Anubhav Mohanty, today appeared before a local court in Cuttack in a domestic violence case lodged by his actress wife Varsha Priyadarshini.
The actor-turned-politician made his stand before the Court of the Sub-Divisional Judicial Magistrate, Cuttack, through his counsel over the charges leveled against him by Ollywood queen Varsha.
“My presence is my honour towards court of law, lawyers’ fraternity and judicial system of India. I appeared before court and submitted my response. I am praying to God and you also pray that the wrong doer may get punishment. Who is standing by truth may get justice. I have full faith in the law. I am sure justice will prevail and justice will win,” Anubhav told media reporters after making appearance before the court today.
When asked about his statement before the court in domestic violence case lodged by his wife, he simply wished the media reporters for the English New Year.
Worth mentioning that the Sub-Divisional Judicial Magistrate (SDJM) Court in Cuttack had served a notice to Anubhav Mohanty for his reply in connection with the domestic violence case.
Varsha had filed a case under the Protection of Women from Domestic Violence Act at the SDJM Court in Cuttack on August 7 accusing husband Anubhav of physical and mental torture. A month before the case, he had filed a petition in the Patiala House Court seeking divorce from her on July 6, 2020. The marital discord between Ollywood’s power couple came to fore later in September.
The court in Delhi issued a notice to Varsha asking her to depose before it on December 10 in connection with the divorce case.
However, the Supreme Court of India on October 16 stayed the divorce petition after Varsha moved to the apex court seeking transfer of the case from Delhi to the Family Court in Cuttack. The court asked the counsels of both the parties to sort out the matter through discussion.
