The battle between an incarcerated Lalu Prasad Yadav‘s daughter-in-law Aishwarya and the rest of the family once again made news on Sunday, as the case reached the police after former Chief Minister Rabri Devi was accused of assaulting Aishwarya and snatching her property. The police arrived at Rabri Devi’s residence and investigated the case.
A divorce case has been going on in a court between Lalu Prasad’s elder son Tej Pratap Yadav and his estranged wife Aishwarya Rai.
After leaving the former chief minister’s residence in the evening, Aishwarya said that her mother-in-law had punched her and beaten her fiercely. A woman policeman was accused of assisting Rabri Devi in the assault.
After the alleged incident, the entrance to Rabri Devi’s residence, 10 Circular Road, was locked.
Aishwarya said that a security worker snatched her mobile phone device at the behest of Rabri Devi to erase evidence of domestic violence and then threw all her belongings out of the house.
Leader of Opposition Tejashwi Yadav is aware of the whole matter.
Meanwhile, Aishwarya’s father, former minister Chandrika Rai, described her son-in-law Tej Pratap as “mad”. He said, “We will not only fight political battles but will also expose Rabri Devi. What protection can the woman of the house (Rabri) give to the women outside?”
Chandrika Rai had hoped during the Lok Sabha election that the problems with his daughter’s family would settle after the polls.
Aishwarya’s mother Poornima Rai alleged that Aishwarya was not given food at home. She used to send food from her home.
Neither Tej Pratap Yadav nor former Chief Minister Rabri Devi made any statement on the matter, but Leader of Opposition Tejashwi told the media that this “drama” was happening at the behest of Chief Minister Nitish Kumar! “The government is doing this to divert people’s attention from the real issue. It is a case of two families or two people running in court. It is for the court to decide,” he said.
Even before this, Aishwarya had accused Rabri Devi of assault. At the time, both his parents had reached 10 Circular Road and sat on a dharna. After a late-night reconciliation, Aishwarya had got a place at her in-laws’.
