Sunjay and his mother harassed me, Karisma Kapoor

Karisma Kapoor and Sunjay Kapur’s divorce case is turning uglier with every passing day. It was not too late when Sunjay claimed that Karisma married him for his money and now the actress counter attack on her estranged hubby by filing a case of dowry and mental harassment against Sunjay and his mother Rani Surinder Kapur.

A couple of days ago, police called Karisma to record her statement and registered an FIR in the matter. In her complain, Karisma alleged that over a period of time the Kapurs mentally harassed her.

Based on her statement, the Khar police have registered an FIR (no 98/16) under the dowry section — 498 (A): husband or relative of husband of a woman subjecting her to cruelty — and Section 34 (common intention) of the Indian Penal Code.

Karisma and Sunjay’s divorce case is presently pending before the Bandra family court. Initially, Karisma and Sunjay filed a divorce case on mutual consent but later Karisma withdrawn the divorce filed on mutual consent after the financial commitment stated by Sunjay failed to satisfy her. The custody of the children is also a primary barrier in Karisma-Sunjay’s divorce.

Post the withdrawn of the divorce case, blame game started between Karisma and Sunjay. Sunjay Kapur claimed in a fresh divorce petition filed in the Bandra family court that Karisma had married him for his money.

Sunjay in the fresh petition said that Karisma has failed not only as a wife and daughter-in-law, but also as a mother. He further stated that Karisma "cruelly deprived" his ailing father to meet Samaira and Kiaan, who passed after six months, failing to see his grandchildren.

Karisma’s lawyers sought time to respond to this and are likely to file the reply during the next hearing on March 3. In the last hearing, Karisma opposed her husband’s application for the interim custody of their two children.

On Thursday, arguments for children custody will also be heard and Sunjay’s lawyer might file another reply in the same matter.
