Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) chief Lalu Prasads elder son Tej Pratap Yadav has filed for divorce in Patna civil court five months after his marriage with Aishwarya Rai.

Tej Pratap was married with Aishwarya Rai, daughter of senior RJD leader Chandrika Rai and granddaughter of former Chief Minister Daroga Rai, on May 12, 2018. Tej and Aishwarya had married at a grand function in Patna.

Former Bihar Minister Tej Pratap Yadav’s lawyer Yashwant Kumar Sharma has confirmed that a divorce petition has been filed.

The divorce petition, which was filed in a court in Patna, has been listed for hearing on November 29.

In his petition, Tej Pratap Yadav has informed court that he no longer wants to remain in marriage with Aishwarya Rai. He has argued that they have compatibility issues.

After filing the divorce petition, Tej met his father Lalu Prasad who has been kept in a paying ward of the Rajendra Institute of Medical Sciences (RIMS) in Ranchi after his conviction in a series of fodder scam cases.

Tej’s elder sister Misa Bharti said that she was shocked at the development and didn’t know anything about it before.
