Puducherry Lieutenant Governor Kiran Bedi’s granddaughter accuse her of misusing "police influence" apparently to separate her from her father. Bedi’s granddaughter made a selfie video and uploaded it on social media expressing her grandmother and mother’s doing with her father, Mr Ruzbeh N. Bharucha. As expected, the video has gone viral on the social media.
"The court has directed all such videos to be removed forthwith. And the one mentioned has already been removed. Also, a direction to the YouTube officials (has been sent) to do so (sic)," Kiran Bedi told media.
The girl in the video states that she is ashamed to be a granddaughter of Bedi. "I am very ashamed to be the granddaughter of Dr Kiran Bedi... the only one that too," the little girl said in the video which appears to have been shot by herself.
"When I called and told you (Kiran Bedi) that my mother is hitting my father with chappals and spitting on him, you had said that it is between a husband and a wife. Nani (grandmother), why are you using police influence now?" she said.
Kiran Bedi's granddaughter, this little girl has mustered courage to go public against harassment meted out to her father by her mother and grandmother. Madam Bedi has apparently claimed her kidnapping when she's happy with her father and wants to be with him only. pic.twitter.com/8G0CVTMHN1— Deepika Bhardwaj (@DeepikaBhardwaj) April 4, 2019
The little girl pointed out that she is safe and happy with her father and there is no case of kidnapping and she is using police influence to separate her from her father.
The video was posted on Twitter on Thursday by a film-maker named Deepika Bhardwaj. "Madam Bedi has apparently claimed her kidnapping when she is happy with her father and wants to be with him only," Bhardwaj said in a tweet.
"I am appalled that Kiran Bedi told her granddaughter that it's a matter between husband and wife when her daughter beat up her husband with chappals, spit on him and thrashed him. I wonder if you'd say the same if a husband did this to his wife. You would book him under Section 498A." Bharadwaj tweeted. The video has so far been viewed over 77,500 times on Twitter.
