Recently, we reported that popular TV actress Shweta Tiwari filed a police complaint against husband Abhinav Kohli and accused him of domestic violence. As per the latest reports, Abhinav secured bail yesterday from a local court after paying Rs.15000. Many reports suggested that Abhinav used to pass sexually coloured remarks, however, Shweta cleared the air by saying that she is the victim of domestic abuse and not her mother, as well as, she mentioned that she was never molested or physically abused at the hands of her step-father.
We also reported that Raja Chaudhary, the biological father of Palak's statement on the same. In an interview with BT, he said that he learned about it via media and it is disturbing for him as a father. And now, in an interview with Mid-day, Raja said that his ex-wife is responsible for this and also accused that he caught Abhinav red-handed when he touched Palak inappropriately back in 2010.
He said, “This was expected. My ex-wife is responsible. My ex-wife was busy with a reality show and our daughter was alone at home. Once, when I entered their house in Malad, I was shocked to see the way he [the accused] was staring at her and touching her inappropriately. This riled me up and we had a heated argument. The matter reached the Malad police where I slapped him at the police station premises.”
Raja also said after knowing about the police complaint, he contacted his daughter. He said, “I do not know how low he stooped to outrage her modesty but I texted my daughter who responded to my messages saying she was 'okay' and that I 'need not worry'. At present, she is reeling under mental agony but I will speak to her to know the details in a few days."

Meanwhile, actor and writer Akhlaque Khan, who is close to Abhinav Kohli, also supported his mom Poonam Kohli’s claims on his innocence. He told the same publication, “He is a close friend. I have known him for the past 15 years and we have often worked together. He is a very kind-hearted person and a good father, too. He cared for his daughter more than his two-and-a-half-year-old son. He had even kept his photo with her as his display picture on WhatsApp for years. When I asked him why he did not keep his son's photo as his display picture, he said it is because he loves his daughter a lot. As a father, he has the right to be aware and ask his daughter about what she is doing and where she's going for her own good. Even if he scolds her, he has the right to do so."
