Abandoned baby girl no more even as Sakshi Joshi and Abhishek Upadhyay file FIRs against each other

In the FIR filed on 13th July, Sakshi has accused Abhishek of writing a Facebook post alleging that he has indulged in her character assassination.

Filmmaker Vinod Kapri and his wife Sakshi Joshi have filed an FIR against the journalist Abhishek Upadhyay who had accused the couple of using tragedy of a new born child to promote himself and his movie.

In the FIR filed on 13th July, Sakshi has accused Abhishek of writing a Facebook post alleging that he has indulged in her character assassination.

In his post, without naming anyone, Abhishek had written a story about a lady who marries an old divorced man through manipulation. In her FIR, Sakshi has claimed that the above story refers to her.

As per the FIR, she deduced that the post was about her when someone commented on the Facebook post with her and her husband filmmaker Vinod Kapri’s name and Upadhyay ‘liked’ that comment. She even alleges in her FIR that Upadhyay not only wrote the above post to defame her and Kapri and asked people to share the above post via WhatsApp but also asked people to walk up to the couple and spit on them.

She even accuses Upadhyay of getting his friend to threaten through a comment that the couple should be beaten up and killed. She has alleged that Upadhyay and his friends are conspiring to get Kapri killed. Sakshi has alleged that owing to the Facebook post, there is a threat to their lives.

Following the above FIR, OpIndia reached out to Abhishek Upadhyay who rubbished the claims. Upadhyay laughed at the allegations of trying to get Vinod Kapri killed and said, “Now I know why he makes flop films. Because he doesn’t even know how to write stories.” He said that his Facebook post was a literary one and had nothing to do with Kapri or his wife.

On 16th July, Abhishek, too, filed a counter FIR against Sakshi Joshi and her husband Vinod Kapri accusing them of CARA rules and Juvenile Justice Act violations.

In his FIR, Upadhyay has asked accused Joshi and Kapri of violating the CARA rules. CARA had informed Sakshi on 16th June 2019 itself that posting the pictures of the newborn baby was in violation of the Juvenile Justice Act. However, despite the warning, the couple continued to post the pictures.

In his FIR, Upadhyay has mentioned a company named “Bhagirathi Films Private Limited” and has alleged that the company could be a front for money laundering.

Casting aspersions that Kapri may have a dubious source of income, Upadhyay has said that he would also write to the Enforcement Directorate and Income Tax Officials and urge them to investigate the company where the couple are directors.

A few weeks back, an emotional story of a journalist couple ‘adopting’ a baby rescued from a garbage dump in Nagaur, Rajasthan made rounds on social media evoking strong sentiment amongst the social media users. A journalist couple, Vinod Kapri and Sakshi Joshi, had warmed everyone’s hearts after they had announced that they would be adopting a baby girl found abandoned near a garbage mound in Rajasthan’s Nagaur area.

However, shocking tweets by journalist Abhishek Upadhyay suggests that controversial journalist Vinod Kapri used the tragedy of a newborn to promote himself and his movie ‘Pihu’ which was supposedly set to release on Netflix in the following days.

In a series of tweets, Upadhyay claimed that Kapri had planted stories in Indian as well as international media houses that he had already adopted the newborn child.

While the mudslinging continues, the little child in whose name it all started, has unfortunately passed away.
