However, her husband, Anil Virwani, has refuted all charges by his wife. When contacted, Anil said, "I am not in town. Besides, let her make all kinds of charges, but I know truth will prevail...."
Speaking about laws, Anil said, "There should be same set of rules for both men and women. A woman can easily cry in public and I don't." (sic)
When asked if the police has summoned him, Anil said, "Nobody has called. Besides, I am not in town."
