Kolkata: Trinamool Congress MP Nusrat Jahan on Thursday gave birth to a baby boy at a private hospital.
Yash Dasgupta, Bengali actor with Bollywood connection and alleged boyfriend of Nusrat was also seen at the hospital with Nusrat.
According to hospital sources, both the mother and the newborn are stable. The child weighs 2.9kg.
“For those who have been enquiring about Nusrat’s health, the mother and child are healthy and doing well,” Yash issued a statement.
Another TMC MP and close friend of Nusrat, Mimi Chakraborty took to twitter and wrote, “Congratulations @nusratchirps wish could hug in personal. Love and hugs.”
Meanwhile, Nusrat’s husband Nikhil Jain said that he wishes the newborn a bright future. “There can be differences in opinion between Nusrat and me but good wishes to the new born will also be there and I wish Nusrat also best for entering into a new role of motherhood,” claimed Nikhil.
On June 9, Bengali actor Nusrat Jahan had claimed her marriage with husband Nikhil Jain to be ‘invalid’ and also claimed that her separation happened long back but she didn’t make it public.
Notably, two years back in June 2019, Nusrat made a destination marriage with businessman Nikhil Jain in Turkey.
In a statement Nusrat in June had said, “Being on foreign land, as per Turkish Marriage Regulation, the ceremony is invalid. It was an interfaith marriage, it required validation under the Special Marriage Act in India which didn't happen. As per court of Law, it’s not marriage but a relationship or live-in relationship.”
Notably, post marriage, Nusrat Jahan had changed her name to Ruhi Jain and after she entered Parliament sporting vermillion and mangalsutra, Muslim clerics had issued a fatwa against Nusrat and claimed that a Muslim can marry only a Muslim.
