India’s Got Talent’ Shubhreet harassed by husband

Specially-able dancer and India’s Got Talent’ contestant Shubhreet Kaur Ghumman has accused her husband of cheating and harassment less than two months after the marriage. Back in June Shubhreet Kaur Ghumman married Chandigarh based Yash Makkar with whom she was friends from 2012.

Both the families had accepted the marriage at that time. But now she accuses her husband of falsely representing himself before marriage and ‘extorting’ money from her. While their marriage was held socially, they did not complete the legal formalities yet. Apparently, soon after marriage Yash started demanding money from Shubhreet’s mother. Shubhreet also learned that he gave false information about his parents living in England.

Talking to the media Shubhreet said, “On June 5 this year I married Yash Makkar, who also runs a gym in Mohali. Before marriage, he told me that his family lives in England and soon they will also get settled there. After marriage we shifted to a rented house in Mohali. But few days later I came to know that his family lives in Chandigarh and he married me for my property… I had a fixed deposit of Rs. 1.45 lakh which he withdrew from the bank. Besides my jewellery, he also took away Rs. 10 lakh which my mom had given us at the time of our marriage…When I raised the issue with his friends and family members, no one told me the truth. Since July 21, I don’t have any information about him as his mobile is switched off.” 

She is currently in Delhi for a performance and will be lodging police complaint soon after returning. Shubhreet said, “I’ll file the complaint with the local police in Malerkotla, once I return from Delhi. Along with the other charges of fraud, I’ll also file a complaint of sexual harassment against him.” Shubhreet also revealed that it was Yash who brought up the marriage proposal first. She said, “Yash had first made the marriage proposal…When my mother Charanjeet Kaur asked Yash to send his parents for talks, he said they live in England and will not give their consent for the marriage.”

When asked about the future of their marriage Shubhreet said, “I don't want to stay with him anymore. I will file for a divorce.” Meanwhile Yash Makkar has addressed a press conference and denied all allegations. He said, “She threatened of committing suicide if I did not marry her. I had then no option but to tie the knot with her hoping that we would have good marital life.”
