Former Odisha CM’s son charges wife with harassment

Bhubaneswar, Oct 1 (IANS) Sishir Gamang, son of former Odisha Chief Minister Giridhar Gamang, on Saturday charged his wife with harassment, torture of their minor son and an extramarital affair.

Sishir has lodged a complaint with the commissionerate police in Bhubaneswar against his wife Monica for physically and mentally harassing him and their son.

“My wife has mentally and physically tortured our 10-year-old son. Besides, she has an extramarital affair with someone named Gaurav Barar. Monica had married Gaurav without my knowledge,” Sishir told media persons here.

He alleged that his wife has fled with Rs 5 lakh in cash and ornaments worth Rs 2.3 crore.

Sishir and Monica got married in 2003 after a love affair. However, both got divorced in 2012 without the knowledge of their family members. They remarried in 2014 following the intervention of their family members.

“One year into the remarriage, Monica started torturing him and his 10-year-old son. After my father lost in 2014 general elections, she started torturing us,” he alleged.

Giridhar Gamang lost the election from Koraput parliamentary constituency to a BJD candidate in 2014.

Sishir said that he came to know about his wife’s extramarital affair one year after their remarriage.

The torture of my son started from the age of 9. Monica’s behaviour suddenly changed after remarriage but I came to know the truth much later,” he said.

Monica, however, refuted the allegations.

“Whatever I have to say I will tell in court. I got married after getting a divorce from Sishir. I have never tortured my son,” Monica told a television channel.
