Bigg Boss 9 contestant Mandana Gupta has filed a case on July 3 against her husband and in-laws before an Andheri metropolitan magistrate. She alleges that she has been “tricked out of the matrimonial house” by her husband Gaurav Gupta and her in-laws in less than six months into the marriage. She has sought Rs 10 lakh as monthly maintenance and compensation of Rs 2 crore “for the trauma and agony”.
The case is expected to be heard on July 15 said her lawyer Madhukar Dalvi.She resorted to provisions of the Protection of Women Against Domestic Violence Act of 2005 as she alleged harassment by her husband and in-laws. The couple had tied the knot this January.
She alleges that “just a few days before the marriage” Gaurav and his parents had asked her to sign a document that would have divested her of her rights as a wife, which she refused. Gaurav Gupta did not return calls made to his office.
