Mahua Moitra came to my house, advocate Jai Anant Dehadrai accuses Trinamool MP of trespassing

Nov 07, 2023 10:56 PM IST

Mahua Moitra might harm him physically, advocate Jai Anant Dehadrai complained to Delhi Police alleging that Mahua Moitra visited his house uninvited.

Jai Anant Dehadrai who accused Trinamool MP Mahua Moitra of taking cash for questions in Parliament has brought fresh allegations against the MP as he wrote to Delhi Police that Mahua Moitra came to his house unannounced on November 5 and 6. "There is every possibility that Smt Moita might intentionally come to my residential premises with the sole objective of filing further fraudulent complaints against me," the advocate whom Mahua Moitra called her 'jilted ex' wrote in his complaint filed on Tuesday.

"...her arriving at my residential premises is a grave cause for concern as it intimidated my staff and also raises an important question as to why someone who claimed an acrimonious past with me would deliberately arrive at my residence -- that too, consecutively and two days in a row," the letter said.

When contacted, Moitra said that it was a complete fabrication and that she was in her constituency Nadia till yesterday.

Apart from the cash-for-question allegation which BJP MP Nishikant Dubey forwarded to the Lok Sabha Speaker and is now under the investigation of the Lok Sabha Ethics Committee, Jai Anant Dehadrai and Mahua Moitra are entangled in a custody fight over their pet Henry -- a rottweiler which they owned jointly when they were in a relationship. After their breakup, both of them claimed Henry was kidnapped by the other party.

"My fear is that Ms Moitra is using my pet Hendry as an excuse to come personally to my residence in a bid to intimidate me. Considering that she has not only filed fraudulent complaints against me in the past (which she then withdrew), and is also the Plaintiff in a Suit filed against me pending in the Delhi high court, I would consider it extremely suspicious and inappropriate for her to show up at my residence without any invitation or cause. I wish to make it absolutely clear that I have not invited Smt Moitra to my residence, and that she has come uninvited and with a very apparent intention to commit trespass and to intimidate me," the letter said.

"I have every reason to believe that Ms Moitra and her close associate from Odisha are conspiring to cause physical harm to me- as revenge for filing criminal complaints alleging corruption against them," Jai Anant said.

Mahua Moitra and Ethics Committee meeting

The Trinamool MP appeared before the Lok Sabha Ethics Committee on November 2 and accused the panel chairman of asking her personal questions. On Tuesday, Moitra claimed that the next sitting of the panel was deferred to keep a Congress member away from the proceedings. "No draft report circulated as is the norm but will be 'adopted' on Nov 9. Meeting postponed to clash with INC MP's nomination date so he can't come. BJP calling allies to ensure attendance to adopt via majority. Chartered flight to fly in MP state president. How scared Adani & Modi are," she posted on X. The Congress MP whom Mahua Moitra did not name is Uttam Reddy who is contesting in the Telangana election.

“What is there to fear about who will attend the Ethics Committee? Or whether the paper was circulated? What is in the report? Does this reflect fear or should we say that guilt conscience pricks the mind? One should be patient,” BJP MP Nishikant Dubey replied.
