New Delhi: Diya Kumari, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) legislator from Sawai Madhopur and Jaipur ‘princess’ has filed for divorce from Narendra Singh under Section 13B of the Hindu Marriage Act. The couple had tied in August 1997 after dating each other for nine years.

Reports claimed that despite being married for more than 20 years, the duo had been living separately for a few months. Following this, the couple decided to approach Gandhi Nagar’s family court for a mutual separation.

Earlier this year, Diya had said that she won’t contest Rajasthan assembly election 2018 due ‘personal reason’. She was replaced by a new candidate Asha Meena.
