In the most shocking news Rahul Mahajan has turned out to be a wife beater. It has been only 3 months since they were married and this is the pathetic scenario. Ofcourse, this is not news to many who have been through the same and experienced the same trauma.
Most husbands who have a very good image in society, educated, suave, when exposed as wife beaters, it is very incomprehensible to digest this fact. They beat their wives in a fit of rage mercilessly and then later offer apologies and explanations. But the irreversible damage has already been done.
Generally women are too embarrassed to admit that they are victims of domestic violence despite of their education & elite background they come from. They refuse to acknowledge it lest it taints their status/reputation.
It took Shweta 3 whole months to expose him and come out with the truth. This is her dismal plight. It is not easy for an educated, a woman who has a successful career to accept this appalling fact in the open–that she too is a victim of domestic violence.

Rahul Mahajan’s wife Shweta Singh is on the verge of ending their two-and-a-half month old marriage because of relentless “physical and verbal abuse” by her husband, a source close to the family told MiD DAY.Rahul and Shweta were married on August 29, when the Mahajans had barely recovered from the events of the previous five months.In April, Pramod Mahajan was shot dead by his brother Pravin. In June, Mahajan’s secretary Bibek Moitra died after he allegedly overdosed on drugs while he was with Rahul.The latest in a series of assaults on Shweta occurred last Wednesday, leaving her with a cut lip, a bruised arm, a sore back — and the realization that she had to get out of the marriage.The incident took place in a car during Rahul’s visit to Delhi last week. To add to Shweta’s humiliation, the beating took place in the presence of two of Rahul’s friends. The source said, Rahul “hit Shweta repeatedly… he caught her by the hair, slapped her on the face, banging her head against the seat. Once, she was hunched over, he kept hitting her on the back with his fists.”The source said Rahul abused and threatened Shweta and her family throughout, and “vowed” to destroy them.Apparently, Rahul was full of remorse later, but even this had a manic edge. He told Shweta to ‘‘take a hammer and finish him off’’. Terrified, Shweta asked him to stay away from her. Shweta’s mother intervened, and Rahul left for Mumbai, sources said.
The pattern was clear well before Rahul’s last attack. Only three weeks ago, after the couple had a disagreement over Rahul’s plans for the future, ‘‘he hit Shweta very hard’’. The blow left a big bruise on Shweta’s thigh. She flew back to Delhi, afraid of ‘‘something worse happening to her’’ because the couple lives alone in Mumbai.
Shweta got to see the violent side of Rahul very early in the marriage. Her ordeal had begun almost as soon as the couple came back after their honeymoon in Seychelles in mid-September.
Upon their return, the couple visited Tirupati and stayed in a hotel, where a trivial matter caused Rahul to lose his temper. The source said Rahul began ‘‘hurling abuses at Shweta, calling her a wh**e and accusing her of having destroyed his life. He called her a Vish Kanya, all the while throwing things.’’ A friend of theirs was in the next room and heard everything.
Shweta was so traumatised after this incident that she couldn’t stop shaking for hours.
After every assault, there were apologies and explanations, said sources. Rahul would tell her that he had an ‘‘anger management’’ problem and that he owed his temper to his ‘‘upbringing and his genes’’.
Shweta, a qualified pilot, is the daughter of a retired brigadier. She grew up in a very protected, fairly conservative environment. Given the controversies surrounding Rahul, Shweta’s father wasn’t very keen that she marry him, say sources, but Rahul’s persistence seems to have influenced her mother.
‘‘He would beg Shweta to marry him and constantly request her mother to convince her,’’ said sources. The last call that Rahul made on the night Bibek Moitra died was to Shweta.
But things have changed dramatically since, transforming the once bubbly, girlish, Shweta to a woman who wears a permanently haunted look.
According to sources, she has been trying to convince Rahul to agree to a ‘‘quiet separation’’.
But Rahul isn’t willing — such a move could adversely affect his political plans and the ongoing court case on drugs charges. But the couple is, for all practical purposes, separated. Shweta refuses to go back to Rahul’s Mumbai flat and lives in Delhi under the constant watch of her mother.
