For the uninitiated, there were reports that Shweta Tiwari and her daughter, Palak Tiwari ha filed cases of harassment against Shweta's estranged husband, Abinav Kohli. But the mother-daughter duo has been changing their statements ever since. On June 13, 2020. Abhinav Kohli had shared Palak's Instagram post screenshot, which she had deleted later. In her post, she had stated that her step-father, Abhinav has never physically molested her or touched her inappropriately. Abhinav had saved and had shared the screenshots of the same and had written, "Lovu why would you delete this post from your Instagram?"
Speaking on how he feels about the allegations levelled on him by his estranged wife, Shweta Tiwari and step-daughter, Palak Tiwari, Abhinav Kohli said, "Whenever I think of the case that Palak and Shweta have filed against me, the only thing that comes to my mind is chee (yuck). I have raised her. I looked after her when Shweta went to the Bigg Boss house. When she was doing Iss Jungle Se Mujhe Bachao I was there. When she was shooting for Parrvarrish I brought up the girl. Getting Palak admitted to Singapore International school. Shweta wanted to send her to boarding school. I told her to not send her. I told her if our baby Palak goes away, the house will be empty. "
Abhinav further expressed his hurt over how could they (Shwet and Palak) put harassment allegations on him when he has raised Palak like his own daughter. In his words, "They have put the sexual harassment allegations against a man who has raised the girl like his own daughter. Palak made her mother comfortable about bold scenes saying that what are you feeling embarrassed and ashamed about. We watched such movies and have grown up on it. Lovu (Palak) had said this in an interview. That girl is so confident. She has been raised in that environment. You are saying I was mistreating that girl. You made this FIR only to put me behind bars. And one day after the arrest, Shweta threatens me that now see how I get a divorce from you. In fact, one month before the incident, Shweta had warned me, you wait and see how I bring my daughter in front and get the divorce. Palak's career was going to start and she used her daughter to get rid of me. She had warned me but I did not pay attention to it."

Abhinav further claimed that Palak had confessed to him that he is closer to her than his real father. He said, "Once Palak herself told me, you being my step-father, closer to me than real fathers of my friends. Such a father I was to Palak. I have got evidence, that till the last day of the incident she was treating me as her father. Why don't you fight a divorce case? If I am so evil, bad why haven't you filed a divorce case till now? The FIR says I was mistreating her since 2017 and they were going on holidays to Dubai, Goa with me. We are celebrating Father's Day, celebrating birthdays. Then you go on record saying I was illtreating her. Even the daughter did not think twice."
Abhinav also stated how he had once made a joke and the mother-daughter duo had blown it out of proportion. He shared, "The matter started two days before the incident. I passed a light comment saying Shweta bacchon ke naam kabhi bhi property mat karna with bacche I meant Palak and Reyaansh both. Bacche bade hojaate hain na woh maa baap ko budhe hone par ghar se bahar nikal dete hain. It was on a lighter note. Suddenly, Palak got offended and started fighting with me."
