Cuttack/Bhubaneswar: The marital discord between actor-turned-politician Anubhav Mohanty and actress Varsha Priyadarshini is turning murkier by the day with a police team landing at the actor’s home in Cuttack for an investigation late on Saturday night.
According to sources, the action by Purighat police followed a complaint lodged by Varsha on Saturday night.
In her complaint, Varsha alleged that Anubhav and two associates had prevented her from entering the house on Friday night and she was forced to stand alone on the road outside for an hour.
A day earlier on Friday, the actress had lodged another complaint against her husband, accusing him of trying to malign her character. She lodged the police complaint after a video of an argument between the couple went viral on social media.
In a related development, Anubhav, who is the Kendrapada MP, has written to Odisha DGP to investigate an audio clip of Varsha, her sisters and him doing the rounds on social media.
In his letter, Anubhav mentioned that the audio clip seems to be a telephonic conversation among “my wife Varsha Priyadarshini, Bananee Sahu (Varsha’s elderst sister), Debjani Sahu Gouda (Varsha’s elder sister) and me”.
The audio clip sounds as if “a very deadly and criminal conspiracy is being planned against me and my family by Varsha and her family”, he added.
In the letter, Anubhav also expressed apprehension that a “national vice-president of a national political party”, whom he had defeated in an election, may be involved “in this deadly conspiracy and financially supporting the conspirators to defame/ruin me”.
