Shweta Tiwari is a popular actress of the small screen industry. Be it for daily soaps or reality shows, the 38-year-old is a popular face in the world of television. Though the actress has a strong career graph, she has had a rough phase in her personal space. Shweta Tiwari’s second marriage has hit the rock bottom. It has been almost six years since Shweta and Abhinav Kohli have been married. It came as a shock to many when reports started doing rounds stating the Kasautii Zindagii Kay fame Shweta has lodged a complaint against Abhinav Kohli for reportedly harassing her daughter Palak Tiwari.

Then the next report that started floating was Abhinav Kohli, step-father of Palak, has been accused of molestation. TOI quoted a police saying as, “Shweta Tiwari has registered a case of molestation against Abhinav Kohli. He would make obscene comments about her daughter and even show her obscene videos. He was arrested under Sections 509, 354 (a), 323, 504, 506 of the IPC and 67-A of the IT Act on Sunday, and produced before the court yesterday.” Now the young girl has shared a post on Instagram in which she has clearly stated that her step-father Abhinav ‘never’ physically molested her.

The lengthy note, with an all-black pic, shared by Palak on Instagram read:

Firstly, i would like to thank everyone who’s reached out to express their concern and support.

Secondly, i would like to address and clarify a few things out of my own rectitude:

The media does not have the facts and they never will. I, Palak Tiwari, was on multiple occasions a victim of domestic abuse NOT my mother, except for the day that the complaint was filed he hadn’t hit my mother. As a reader of the news its often easy to forget that you do not know the truth of what goes on behind closed doors or how much fortitude my mother has shown in both her marriages. This is someone’s household you’re writing about, someone’s life you’re discussing. Many of you fortunately haven’t even dealt with something of such heinous proportions, and hence you have no right to comment, discuss or paint someone else’s image through your biased, misinformed views.

It’s beyond disgusting and its time that i stand up for my mother for she is the strongest person i know and since out of all of us I’m the only person who’s witnessed her struggle day in and day out, my opinion is the only one that matters.

Abhinav Kohli has never physically molested me, or touched me inappropriately. Before spreading something of this caliber or even believing it, its imperative you as readers know the veracity of the facts that you’re blindly divulging endlessly. However, he did persistently make inappropriate and disturbing remarks the impact of which is only known to my mother and I, and if any woman from any walk of life were to hear them she would be greatly embarrassed and provoked too. Words which would question the standing dignity of any woman, which you wouldn’t expect to hear from any man, especially not your “father”. Seeing our lives through social media, reading about us in the papers can only tell you so much about our struggles, but never enough to comment on them. Today as a proud daughter, I’m here to tell you that my mother is the most respectable individual that I’ve ever come across, the MOST self sufficient, one who’s never required or even had a man provide for her and has always taken the social standing of a “man” in both the families that we’ve been a part of.

Abhinav Kohli’s mother in an interview to Mirror rubbished all the accusations against her. She stated that her son is innocent and her daughter-in-law Shweta Tiwari wanted a divorce from him. Shweta and Abhinav dated for almost three years before tying the knot on July 13, 2013 and in 2016 the couple was blessed with a son. It was in 2017 when the first reports of trouble in their married life started doing rounds.
