However, the new turn in the story is recently, Divya Sachdeva, wife of the accused Vikas Sachdeva said something shocking in an interview. She accused Zaira of doing a publicity stunt. She said,
“This girl has been influenced by fame and wrongly accused my husband Vikas. My husband was coming home from Delhi. His mamaji had passed away and he was not in the right frame of mind. He was feeling very low and asked for a blanket. He wanted to sleep.I am shocked at Zaira’s allegation. The police have taken my husband into custody.”
Divya further added,
“They came home this morning. Why did Zaira not raise an alarm then and there? Why did Zaira tweet 2 hours later? Zaira had her mother for company. Despite that, the two ladies chose not to make any noise, why? My father is an ex-Army officer and my father-in-law is an ex-Income Tax officer. We know how important it is to respect a lady, our family upholds very high values.My husband is a family man. We have a 9-year-old child Vikas can never misbehave with any lady in any manner.”
