Mauris Noronha’s wife Sareena

Noronha’s wife Sareena said,

'Mauris was not perfect, but he was not the villain social media users have made him out to be. I will regret what happened for the rest of my life. As much as I am saddened about my daughter losing her father, I feel sad for [Shiv Sena (UBT) leader]'

She added,

"I would like to emphasise that one should not trouble anyone so much that the consequences of one’s actions become painful. His rivals bear responsibility for whatever has transpired. The criminal cases against Mauris were politically motivated. The rape case against him was orchestrated by his enemies as part of a conspiracy. Apart from this, Mauris did not have any criminal record."
