PATNA: A woman claiming to be Udit Narayan’s first wife alleges Udit called her up twice last week and tried to blackmail her emotionally.

Ranjana, who claims she was married to Udit, says he had made the calls after his five-hour-long closed-door talks with her on June 30 to thrash out a compromise.

“He told me Deepa, his second wife, is very clever and has transferred all his property in her name and he was under tremendous pressure,” Ranjana said. “But I told him I only want my rights and respect as your wife, nothing more. I do not want money.”

On Wednesday, Bihar women’s commission put an embargo on Udit’s foreign visits after he failed to appear before it for the sixth time in last two months. it gave Udit 15 more days to appear before it to clarify or explain his move for a compromise with Ranjana.

Ranjana, a resident of Nirmali, claims she married the singer in 1984, and his present wife, Deepa was not his legal wife. Ranjana said she was also shocked and hurt by his referring to her as “lady”. Udit has so far denied Ranjana’s claim. He said in April he did not know “any Ranjana Narayan”, and had never married her. But two days ago he had said “the lady’s sister is married to my brother”.
