Indian TV actress Preity Zinta has accused her husband Abhijeet Patel of torturing her to convert.
According to reports, the actress, who rose to fame with the drama serial ‘Krishna Dasi’, was married to gym owner Abhijeet Patel three years ago, but now Dakara has accused her husband of beating her up for converting to Islam in a Twitter post.
The actress has alleged that her husband is a Muslim and they were married in a mosque but no certificate was issued from there.
She said that her husband was beating her to change her religion and was constantly pressuring her.
The actress alleged that Abhijeet has also converted to Islam but has not changed his name.
Preity added that her husband Abhijeet did not have any conversion documents and therefore her legal name was Abhijeet.
The actress has also posted pictures of her husband being tortured, showing signs of torture on her face and neck, while a CCTV video has also been shared in which she also allegedly tortured her husband in the parking area. Torture has been claimed.
Police have registered a case at the request of the actress but the incident is being investigated.
On the other hand, the police said that the preliminary investigation did not prove that Abhijeet was a Muslim while the petition did not mention any religious issue.
According to police, Abhijeet Patkar is not a Muslim but a Hindu but claims to believe in Islam.
