‘Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai’ star Karan Mehra was arrested earlier this week over alleged domestic violence against his wife, Nisha Rawal. She had filed a complaint after an apparent brawl at home that led to a head injury.
Mehra denies all allegations made by Rawal and told the media, “Nisha has been lying. I have never tried to harm her in any way. Speaking of the domestic violence incident, it is a big lie. In fact, she barged into my bedroom while I was talking to my mother over the phone. All of a sudden she started abusing me and my family. She even spat on me. When I told her not to spit, she said, ‘ab dekho kya hota’ ( now see what happens), and the very next second she banged her head on a wall.”
He added, “She came out of the room and told her brother, Rohit, that I hit her. Seeing blood on Nisha’s face, Rohit became angry and slapped me.”
The star alleged that CCTV had been shutdown and the cameras weren’t working at the time of the incident, reports Bollywood Hungama. “I tried to stop Rohit from hitting me. I started defending myself. I asked him to watch the footage of the cameras which are installed at our home. When I checked the cameras, they were already turned off. Nisha and her brother then immediately started recording all the videos of the injury she got after banging her head on the wall,” he added.
Mehra said that it was back in March this year they decided to divorce. “We were going through a bad relationship. We were not happy living with each other so we decided to mutually separate from each other. I also thought it’s better for our son nothing is more important than peace. But the alimony that she asked was quite high and I disagreed to pay that heavy amount to her. All this led to heated arguments and continuous fights,” he said.
Mehra added that he doesn’t feel his son is safe. “I feel my son is not safe with Nisha anymore. Earlier I happily decided to let Kavish live with Nisha but now I really don’t know. I don’t want my child to get affected. I am really worried about him. It’s heartbreaking to see whatever is happening.”
The couple got married in 2012.
