Wrestler Sangram Singh Lashes Out At Rajasthan Government For Arresting His Wife



On  Sunday December 15  actress Payal Rohatgi  was taken into custody by the Rajasthangovernment  for allegedly making offensive comments on the Nehru parivar  on  the social media.

 Earlier this  month Ms Rohatgi was served a notice for the allegedly offensive video .On Sunday she  was taken into  custody from Ahmedabad and escorted  to Bundi  in  Rajasthan.

Speaking from Bundi on  Monday afternoon Payal Rohatgi’s husband wrestler Sangram Singh said, “My wife was detained in Ahmedabad for a  video she posted earlier this  month.She was  formerly arrested and brought  to  the Bundi  court  .I’ve been in  the  court  for the whole morning where  our lawyer  was  speaking in my wife’s defence. The  court has  rejected my wife’s bail application  and she is  now in custody until  December 24.”

Sangram tries to curb his agitated state  of  mind  . But his understandable bitterness is revealed when he  says, “What wrong has my wife done? She  was  only exercising her right to freedom. And the  quote that has  offended  the Congress I  was not hers. It was from M.O  Mathai’s book.”

Worried and  helpless Sangram states,  “I can’t imagine how my wife will spend time inside jail. I don’t know  how I can get her  out. My lawyer says we’ve to go to a higher  court. How  long would that take?When  can I have my wife back? I’ve no answers. I feel helpless  just thinking about her in a dingy prison cell.”

Sangram  wonders why the Congress I  reacted so  strongly to his wife’s post. “Instead of focusing  on  doing good for Rajasthan they are  wasting their time pouncing on  irrelevant issues.  In a  country where the most heinous crimes are  committed against women, my wife has  been arrested for  speaking  her  mind.”

I  try to reason though the madness  saying  maybe Ms Rohatgi’s pro-BJP  tweets have provoked the  Congress.

“She isn’t  pro-BJP.She is  pro-justice,  pro-honesty. What happened to  freedom of expression in  our country?” wonders Sangram as he  prepares to  fight a long  legal battle  with his  wife.
