The hearing of the marital discord case of Biju Janata Dal MP, Anubhav Mohanty and his estranged wife, actress Varsha Priyadarshini was held by the family court in Cuttack on Thursday.

While the court had already recorded statements of Anubhav Mohanty, the court heard Varsha’s statement for the fourth time on Thursday.

As the hearing could not be completed today, the court set another date for hearing.

Anubhav’s lawyer, Gita Luthra said, “The counsel of Varsha had deposed before citing that she has problems in understanding English. However, we put the fact in front of the court that she has been an avid user of social media. So she cannot say that she does not know English.”

“None of our questions were overruled by the court as irrelevant,” Luthra said.

Earlier on August 30, 2022, the court had directed Varsha to vacate her husband Anubhav Mohanty's residence in Cuttack.

Later on September 13, Varsha had informed the Cuttack district judge court that she would vacate her in-laws’ house within a month. Since the deadline ended on September 30, she vacated the house.
