Shalini Talwar said that she was subjected to numerous incidents of physical, verbal, mental, and emotional abuse at the hands of her husband and his family.

In the plea, Talwar has stated how she was physically assaulted by Singh over the last 10 years.

Talwar also levelled cheating allegations against her husband, saying that he used to frequently have casual sex with multiple women, not wear his wedding ring, and mercilessly beat her for releasing their marriage pictures online. Besides this, she also claimed that once her father-in-law walked into her room in inebriated condition while she was changing her clothes and grazed his hands over her chest. Talwar sought direction from the court to her ask her husband to pay Rs 10 crore as interim compensation for perpetrating domestic violence on her.

Before filing a case against her husband, Shalini Talwar had shared some cryptic posts regarding mental and physical abuse. Netizens started to worry and asked if she was okay. However, the post that triggered the most worry was when she wrote on Instagram, “No matter which category of society we belong, rich or poor educated or uneducated, whether you are famous or not the plight of a women is same in the face of atrocities. #harshreality #narcissisticabuse.”
A week back, she shared another quote picture which read, “Never excuse someone’s ballast lying. It only proves their lack of character, integrity, deceitfulness, and evil mindset.”
