According to sources, Barsha has alleged that Anubhav is a habitual drunkard and he often drinks with his friends at home. The MP also assaulted and harassed her mentally, she alleged.
The actress further alleged that whenever she tried to prevent Anubhav from drinking, he would get violent and physically assault her and tried to throw her out of the house.
Levelling another serious allegation, she said Anubhav has extramarital affairs with multiple women from the Ollywood industry.
Anubhav meanwhile, claimed that he had not received any legal notice from the court as yet. “I have so far not received any legal notice regarding the case. I will let everyone know about it as and when I received the notice. Let’s wait till then,” the actor turned politician said nonchalantly.
As per the official website of the District Courts, the first hearing of the case is scheduled to be held on September 7.
