Balasore, March 25: After facing lots of flak in a dowry torture case, Rajashree Mohanty, son of former Odisha minister Raghunath Mohanty, finally sought divorce from his estranged wife Barsha Sony, who played a key role in spoiling the political career of the senior BJD leader.
Rajashree filed for divorce at a family court in Balasore. His name came to fore in Odisha politics after Barsha filed a case against him and his parents alleging dowry torture in 2013.
Raghu Mohanty had to step down as the minister after the case and faced arrest along with his wife and son Rajashree. Since then he had been struggling to repair his image and get a position in the party, but his efforts went in vain.
Even he was not given ticket in the 2014 assembly elections.
