In June, we brought you story of Television and Bollywood actress Arzoo Govitrikar, that she had approached the Worli Police and filed a complaint against her husband Siddharth Sabharwal alleging that he repeatedly assaulted her under the influence of alcohol. Later, the actress husband was banned from entering their house in Worli. It was being reported that the Dadar Metropolitan Court had earlier ordered Sabharwal to not enter their Worli house till further notice. The early report had stated, “Metropolitan Magistrate RM Karade also directed that Sabharwal should not accost Govitrikar, and that the copy of his order be sent to Worli Police Station.”
Now the recent development in the story is that Siddharth Sabharwal has approached the High Court seeking to quash a Metropolitan Magistrate court’s order restraining him from entering their house, reports Mumbai Mirror. A latest report in Mirror states, “Sabharwal has now approached the High Court against the order, claims that he has nowhere to go as all his residential properties have been given on lease and, therefore, he should be allowed to return home.” “Since May 29, 2019 the petitioner has had to stay either at his sister’s residence or with his friends despite the fact that he owns the said matrimonial home…” the petition filed through advocate Karan Kadam, reads.
“Sabharwal, a businessman, further claims that he was deliberately informed about the magistrate’s order nearly a week after it was passed on May 8, when he was leaving for Germany on a work trip, which means that his wife continued to live with him even after the court order, his petition says. He also claims that he is ready to pay rent for an alternate accommodation for Govitrikar, but wants to reside in his house. He says that email exchanges between him and his wife regarding a trip to Switzerland will show that there wasn’t any domestic violence and that Govitrikar had only “created a situation wherein she not only unilaterally enjoys the said matrimonial home, but also where the petitioner is coerced into funding a luxurious lifestyle which she did not previously enjoy”,” reports Mirror.
When Govitrikar accused her husband of being an alcoholic, Sabharwal said if he was an alcoholic then she would not want their son to be around any person who is in a drunken state, Sabharwal claims that she allowed their son to travel to Gir with him.
On Monday, Govitrikar appeared in court, and sought time to
appoint her lawyer in the case. Govitrikar, who married Sabharwal in March 2010
after a brief courtship, resided with him at their house on Pochkhanawala Road
in Worli, before she moved out in February following what she termed as “another
round of brutal assault”, reports Mirror.
