Lalu’s daughter-in-law appears before court as divorce case takes new turn
AISHWARYA APPEARS BEFORE COURT FOR THE FIRST TIME SINCE TEJ PRATAP FILED DIVORCE PETITION IN NOVEMBER LAST YEAR
PATNA: The divorce case filed by RJD chief Lalu Prasad’s elder son Tej Pratap Yadav against his newly-married wife Aishwarya Rai took a new turn on Thursday.
For the first time since the divorce petition was filed in a Patna court in November last year, Aishwarya appeared before a Patna family court today, adding new twist to the divorce story.
Once she reached the court along with her parents, media people tried to get near her and seek her reaction but she refused to speak. She is currently staying with her mother-in-law Rabri Devi, former chief minister of Bihar despite all these troubles.
Her appearance in the court indicates that all patch-up bids have failed, many say.
In her reply filed in the court, Aishwarya has also accused her husband of being “marijuana addict” and having peculiar obsession for dressing up like Radha and other Hindu deities.
“Soon after my wedding, I discovered that he was dressing himself like deities more often. Once he even wore ‘ghaghra’ (long skirt) and ‘choli’ (blouse), did heavy make-up and put on hair wig to look like Radha,” she has been quoted as saying in her reply to the court.
According to her, she informed her in-laws about Te Pratap’s behavior to which they assured to talk to him but nothing has happened.
Trouble in their family life came barely six months after marriage. The couple had got married in May last year and the divorce petition was filed just six month later in November.
Ironically, Aishwarya’s father-in-law Prasad in not around to settle the family dispute. He is currently serving prison sentence in Ranchi jail in connection with fodder scam cases.
