Cuttack: The Odisha State Commission for Women (SCW) has issued a notice to BJD MP Anubhav Mohanty and his parents over the marital discord between the MP and his actress wife Varsha Priyadarshini that saw a barrage of police complaints being filed against each other in a short period of time.
As per reports, the Commission has directed Anubhav, his father and mother to appear before it on December 29.
It is pertinent to mention here that actress Varsha Priyadarshini had moved Odisha State Commission for Women (OSCW) over her ongoing marital discord on December 15.
Earlier on Friday, Anubhav had appeared before the Cuttack SDJM court and submitted his response through his counsel on the domestic violence charges levelled against him by his wife.
A few days ago, the matrimonial dispute between the couple witnessed a new twist after Delhi-based journalist Jagrati Shukla, who described herself as one of the good friends of the Mohanty, cautioned the ‘fans of Varsha’ for trolling her on social media platform by using ‘sick, demeaning, derogatory and unacceptable abuses’ against her.
She had even requested Union Minister of Information and Broadcasting Prakash Javadekar, Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik and National Commission for Women (NCW) to take exemplary action against those who are indulging in such activities.
