Bobby Darling divorce case: Husband questions validity of marriage
Bollywood actor Bobby Darling aka Pakhi Sharma, who had filed for divorce in 2017, landed in fresh trouble after her husband called their marriage invalid. According to media reports, Bobby's husband Ramneek Sharma stated that their marriage isn't valid as per the Hindu Marriage Act (HMA). Notably, Bobby had filed for divorce on grounds of cruelty after which Ramneek was arrested in May 2018.
In her divorce petition, Bobby not only had demanded the dissolution of her marriage, but also urged for cancellation of an October 2016 gift deed of a flat in Oshiwara. Besides that, Bobby has demanded an alimony of Rs. 2 crore from Bhopal-based businessman Ramneek. Meanwhile, last September, the family court ordered that status quo be maintained as far as the properties were concerned.
On the other hand, Bobby's husband Ramneek rubbished her claims and stated that their wedding isn't valid as per the Hindu Marriage Act. He further mentioned that as per HMA, a marriage is only valid if it is between a man and a woman.
To recall, Bobby had accused Ramneek of domestic violence and for demanding dowry in 2017. She had also filed a domestic violence complaint against him, and alleged that he had manhandled his brother and mother as well. "Ramneek would beat me after getting drunk and accuse me of having extramarital affairs with other men. He also usurped my property and money," she added.
"He made me give him co-ownership of my flat in Mumbai, and did the same when we bought our penthouse in Bhopal. He also bought a SUV using my money immediately after the marriage. Now, I am left with nothing," Bobby had claimed back then.
Bobby further claimed that Ramneek holds a criminal record, which she wasn't aware of at the time of their marriage. "I've faced a lot of domestic violence. I still can't move my left hand freely and limp while walking. My speech is also slurred," she had stated back then. Bobby, born Pankaj Sharma, underwent sex change operation in 2015, and married Ramneek in 2016.
