On August 03, Bollywood singer Honey Singh’s wife, Shalini Talwar, filed a case of domestic violence, sexual violence, mental harassment, and financial violence against him. Shalini has filed a plea in Delhi’s Tis Hazari court under the ‘Protection of Women’ from Domestic Violence Act. The complaint was lodged today before Ms Tania Singh, Chief Metropolitan Magistrate of the Tis Hazari Court. The court has also issued a notice to Honey Singh to file his reply by August 28.
In the latest update, Shalini has sought Rs 10 crore compensation, saying she felt like a farm animal being treated cruelly. Shalini claimed that she was subjected to numerous physical, verbal, mental and emotional abuse by her husband and his family.
Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Tania Singh has issued notice to Singh, directing him not to alienate or create any third party rights at their jointly owned property in Noida or dispose of his wife’s jewellery and other articles, said her lawyer.
In her plea, Shalini disclosed that “due to mental harassment and cruelty imposed upon her over a period of time, she also suffered from symptoms of depression and sought medical help.”
She further revealed that her husband, Honey Singh, frequently cheated on her with other women. He never wore his wedding ring and mercilessly beat her for online wedding pictures, said Shalini.
Besides this, she claimed that once her father-in-law walked into her room drunk while she was changing her clothes and inappropriately felt her chest.
Shalini asserted that she had all the evidence to show various acts of domestic violence that she had to go through over the years.
She has pleaded in front of the court to issue orders against him under the Protection of Women from Domestic Violence Act, 2005.
She has also requested that the court order the singer to pay a rent of Rs 5 lakh every month for fully furnished accommodation in Delhi to live independently without being dependent on her widowed mother
