Former Minister Alleges Torture By Wife & Son, Demands Maintenance

Jaipur: A former Rajasthan minister has sought maintenance from his wife and son, alleging that they beat him, don’t give him sufficient food and allow him to meet people.

Vishwendra Singh, a member of the royal family of Bharatpur, had given an application in the Subdivision Officer Tribunal against his wife Divya Singh, a former MP, and son Anirudh Singh, reported IANS.

“I have been forced to leave my house (Moti Mahal). I am living a nomad’s life. Sometimes I have to stay in a government house and sometimes in a hotel. I have been confined to one room. When I come to Bharatpur, I am not even allowed to enter the house. It is no longer possible to live with my wife and son at home,” Vishwendra wrote to the subdivisional magistrate.

He has demanded Rs 5 lakh per month from both of them.

Vishwendra has also accused his wife and son of conspiring to kill him.

Divya and Anirudh have denied the allegations and claimed that they are the real victims in the case.

“It is nothing but pressurising tactics on the SDM. My mother and I have the highest faith in the SDM Court and on the Hon’ble Judge to handle the matter with alacrity and fairness. The matter is not new. It has been going on since 6 March 2024,” Anirudh Singh posted on social media.

Vishwendra alleged that the intention of his wife and son is to end his life and “grab” all the property.

“I was hoping that maybe their behaviour would improve, but it did not happen. My wife and son even locked one of my rooms and forcibly threw me out of the house, so I had to leave the house. I brought whatever clothes I had while leaving the house. I have been living like this since then,” Vishwendra wrote, adding that he is a heart patient.

“I cannot bear tension due to two stents inserted during treatment. Tension is fatal for my life. I got coronavirus infection twice in 2021 and 2022, but my son and wife did not provide any physical, mental or financial help,” he stated.

“I own the properties inherited from my father through a will. My wife and son threw my clothes in the well. They tore up papers, records etc. and threw out the stuff from the rooms. They have stopped providing tea and water. He told the court that his wife and son should also be stopped from defaming him through social media,” he added.

Anirudh rubbished all his father’s allegations on Sunday.

“If needed, evidence of financial fraud and the wrong sale of property against my father will be presented in the SDM court,” he said.
