Divya breathed her last on Monday after battling COVID-19. The 'Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai' star had been in a hospital in Mumbai after she was diagnosed with health complications. Since her death, her family and close industry friend, Devoleena Bhattarcharjee, have accused her husband of physical abuse. Devashish, Divya's brother on Thursday shared several screengrabs of his chats with her. He wrote, “I wish i could get to know all this. I wish i could tell her that it is okay to take stand for yourself. I wish i could tell her that girls are the most powerful human species. I wish i could save her from this devil. I want this guy hanged @whogabru. This is guy is been threatening divya bhatnagar that he will get me (her brother and mother killed),defame her, screw her life if she would share anything with anyone.”
"Now i am handling over this case to all of her fans,friends, family and the people who actually care about humanity," he further said. In the messages, Divya said that she was being regularly beaten up with a belt, and that her finger has been broken multiple times. She said that she used to tell herself that it was probably because he was frustrated with an ongoing case. Previously, Devashish had told The Times of India, “Gagan started torturing Divya physically and mentally soon after their marriage. She had written a note on November 7, in which she had stated that Gagan tortures and abuses her. We found the note in her cupboard yesterday. She had also approached the police and filed an NC on November 16 against him, following an episode of domestic abuse. I had told her to stay strong when I got to talk to her during her hospitalisation.”Earlier, Saath Nibhana Saathiya 2's actress Devoleena Bhattacharjee, shared an emotional video on Instagram after the death of her close friend Divya Bhatnagar. In the video, Devoleena broke down as she remembered Divya and said that she was very close to her.
