Bigg Boss contender Deepshikha Nagpal has lodged an FIR against ex-husband Kaishav Arora for beating and threatening her.

Bigg Boss star Deepshikha Nagpal says that she couldn’t take physical abuse from her ex-husband Kaishav Arora any more and filed a police case on Women’s Day to ensure other wives who face similar abuse speak up. The couple who married in 2012 got a divorce a few days back. This was the second complaint filed by Deepshikha.

“The first time I did (complaint) and I thought he will be fine, everybody has to give one chance to this marriage. But if on Women’s Day I’m being beaten up, I will not take it. If I remain mum so what will other wives do?” said Deepshikha while she was leaving the Bangur Nagar police station in Mumbai, to file the case.

When asked what were the sections on which the case was filed, “They’re(police) saying not to talk right now, will talk later. They’re saying they’re supporting, they will help, the legal procedure is on. I’m just saying, I need my justice, I need my protection, nothing else.”

She also said it was the second time she had come to the police station to file the case. Reportedly, she had also filed a police complaint last year when Kaishav allegedly threatened to kill her.

Deepshikha had married Kaishav, who is also an actor, in 2012. But she added, “We don’t stay together, the divorce took place recently just 3-4 days back.” She also said, “No one has the right to raise their hand on a woman, be it me or any other woman. That’s all I wanted to say, I don’t want to interfere in anyone’s personal life, but I need protection for my life.”

The actress, who has acted in films like Partner and Corporate, was earlier married to actor Jeet Upendra and parted ways in 2007 after about 10 years of marriage.
