Bihar Women's Commission issues fesh summon against Udit
Patna, May 12 (UNI) Bihar State Women's Commission today issued fresh summon against playback singer Udit Narain directing him to appear before it on May 22 in the wake of a complaint lodged against him by his estranged wife Ms Ranjna Jha.
President of the Commission, Ms Manju Prakash told UNI that fresh summon was issued against the singer following his failure to appear before it as per the earlier summon issued against him. She, however, made it clear advocate of Mr Udit Narain appeared before the commission and requested more time for his appearance.
Ms Prakash said that Mr Narain was asked to appear before the commission but failed to appear before it and instead sent an advocate to represent him. The commission, however, granted more time on his counsel's request.
Earlier, the estranged wife of the singer had lodged a complaint against him with the commission, alleging that he had deserted her.
'' I was married to Udit in 1986 in presence of large number of relatives, '' said Ranjana and alleged that he was living with another lady, Deepa in Mumbai. ''I am the lawful wife of Udit and he must give my due rights,'' Ms Jha demanded, while lodging a complaint with the Women's Commission.
''Ms Ranjana had submitted documents and photographs which proves that she is married to the singer,'' said Ms Prakash.
She said the commission would do everything possible to provide justice to Ms Jha, who was running from pillar to post after being deserted by Udit.
