Naga Munchetty mistaken for domestic abuse victim by husband James Haggar! What are her thoughts on that?
Naga Munchetty is not the victim of domestic abuse. But her former Channel 4 colleagues believed she was a domestic abuse victim after she turned up to work with cuts and bruises on her face. Naga had cuts and bruises on her face with a racket in a squash accident by her husband James Haggar.
She is competitive when it comes to sports. She said,
“I always loved squash. I have numerous cuts and a bad scar from where my husband slammed the racket into my face. With James and I it is always competitive and I am one of those annoying players who get in the way.”
Munchetty cleared the misunderstanding and said,
“He hit me with the forehand. So I have this scar, I thought he had broken my jaw. There was blood everywhere so we drove to hospital.”
After she reached to hospital, she was asked if she was a victim of domestic violence when James was not there. She cleared it by saying that he has never used his hands on anyone. When she got back to work at Channel 4 News with injury everyone was concerned.
She said that it was a squash injury. After the incident, her husband refused to play squash with her for three years.
