Cuttack: The Orissa High Court today issued an order staying the Parliament Secretary’s notice asking Ollywood actor Varsha Priyadarshini to surrender the Parliament Spouse Identity Card issued to her.
The High Court issued the stay order while admitting a petition filed by Varsha challenging the order issued by the Parliament Secretary.
The Parliament Secretary had issued the notice to Varsha following a written request by her estranged husband Kendrapara MP and Ollywood actor Anubhav Mohanty.
Varsha has also prayed the court for restraining Anubhav from repeatedly making statements in the press on their marital life.
The High Court has posted the next hearing in the matter for March 15.
Worth mentioning, while Anubhav has filed a suit seeking divorce from Varsha, the latter has demanded restitution of conjugal rights.
Varsha has also filed a case of domestic violence against Anubhav at the SDJM Court, Cuttack accusing him of physical and mental torture.
