Shweta Tiwari’s daughter denies molestation charge, says step-father Abhinav Kohli ‘never touched her inappropriately’

Palak Tiwari took to Instagram to clarify that Kohli used to beat her up and not her mother. She, however, denied media reports that Kohli molested her or even touched her inappropriately. Palak wrote on Instagram, “Abhinav Kohli has never physically molested me, or touched me inappropriately. Before spreading something of this caliber or even believing it, it’s imperative you as readers know the veracity of the facts that you’re blindly divulging endlessly. (sic)”

She, however, added that Kohli frequently made ‘inappropriate and disturbing remarks’ adding that ‘the impact of which is only known to my mother and I. (sic)’

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.

This was after police in Mumbai had arrested TV actor Abhinav Kohli on charges of sexual harassment. Palak and her mother had reportedly approached the Samta Nagar Police Station in suburban Kandivali on Sunday evening. “The victim and her mother went to the police station and lodged a complaint against the accused, following which police arrested him (on late Sunday night),” news agency PTI had quoted a police spokesperson.

Kohli is accused of often using ‘filthy language’ and showing her ‘obscene photos’ of models on mobile phones on multiple occasions since October 2017.

An offence was registered against Kohli under IPC sections 354-A (sexual harassment), 323 (voluntarily causing hurt), 504 (intentional insult with intent to provoke breach of peace) and 506 (criminal intimidation).

Shweta Tiwari had split from her previous husband and Palak’s biological father, Raja Chaudhary, alleging physical violence and torture.
