The police have started a probe after receiving a complaint that Odia film actress Varsha Priyadarshini, the estranged wife of a ruling BJD MP, has received an anonymous letter which, in a filthy language, told her to vacate her husband's house here, an official said on Friday. Priyadarshini and her husband Anubhav Mohanty are fighting legal battles in courts of Odisha and New Delhi.
However, she continues to stay with Mohanty's family at his residence in Nandi Sahi locality under Purighat police station area. "The hand-written letter was delivered to Varsha Priyadarshini by one of their domestic helps. He said he had found the letter lying near a gate of the house. We have questioned some persons in this regard," Purighat police inspector Rashmi Ranjan Sahu said.
While the actress has lodged a domestic violence case in a court here against him, Mohanty has filed a divorce suit in a New Delhi court. The inspector said that the police have recently received two written complaints, one each from Priyadarshini and her mother-in-law.
Priyadarshini lodged a complaint accusing her in-laws of conspiring to throw her out of the MP's house. She also claimed that there is a threat to her life and she is under acute mental stress. On the other hand, her mother-in-law Madhusmita Mohanty charged Priyadarshini with creating unnecessary disturbances in the house.
Priyadarshini and Anubhav Mohanty got married five years ago.
