It was claimed that the famous television programmer Reha Muhtar, who has been out of sight for a long time, beat her 13-year-old daughter, who was born from her marriage to actress Deniz Uğur, for not giving her the laptop in her hand, and bit her hands holding the laptop when her daughter resisted.
According to the news of Birsen Altuntaş from tv100; His ex-wife Deniz Uğur, who filed a custody case against Muhtar in the past years, received a report of assault on her daughter and applied to the Istanbul Anatolian 1st Family Court.
Deniz Uğur's petition included the following statements:
“Reha Muhtar, whom I am complaining about, is the father of my children. We've been apart for a long time. We have 2 joint children. The custody of the children is with their father. I took my children Mina Deniz and Poyraz Deniz from their schools in Tarabya on 12.09.2022 on the day of personal relations with the decision of the Istanbul Family Court.
We came home together in the evening, while I was at the residence, my daughter Mina said that her father Reha had beaten her very badly on the previous Friday. He even confirmed his previous behavior by saying that he beat him very badly this time. In fact, Mina had previously filed a complaint against her father for injury. Later, when her father put pressure on her, she gave up her complaint.
The boy showed me the strings of beatings on his body. My daughter had bruises and bruises on her arms and legs. I also saw bite marks on his hands. The boy was very nervous and afraid because he would return to his father's house at the weekend. He said to me, 'If you complain about my father, he will kill me'.
We were alone during these conversations. I calmed my daughter down and took her to Kavacık Medistate Hospital. Even the doctor, after examining my daughter there, understood that the child was afraid and had a bad mood. She relayed this situation to me. My daughter's twin brother, my son Poyraz, is also completely withdrawn…”
After examining the evidence, the court ordered Reha Muhtar to be suspended for one month.
