Kendrapada MP Anubhav Mohanty Appears In SDJM Court In Domestic Violence Case

Cuttack:18/12/20 Actor-turned-politician Anubhav Mohanty on Friday appeared in Cuttack Sub-divisional Judicial Magistrate Court in connection with a domestic violence case filed by his wife Varsha Priyadarshini.

In September, Varsha had filed a domestic violence case against her husband under several sections of the Protection of Women from Domestic Violence Act and accused him of physical and mental torture and violence, including financial treachery.

In her criminal miscellaneous case, she had sought a direction to Anubhav to pay compensation of Rs 13 crore and Rs 2 crore towards loss of earnings and medical expenses, right to residence in share household or pay Rs 20,000 for house/residence rent at her level in society and Rs 50,000 maintenance a month.

On October 12, the SDJM court had asked the Kendrapada MP to file his response in an affidavit within a month and fixed November 12 for the next hearing of the case.

She had also filed another case in the district family court under Section 9 of the Hindu Marriage Act, in which she, as an aggrieved party, sought a decree of restitution of conjugal rights.

These petitions were filed after Anubhav moved a Family Court in New Delhi for divorce from Varsha on grounds of cruelty while claiming that the marriage between them has never been consummated.
