If you are interested to read more about Barkha Dutt’s personal life, Here is some of the insight of her personal life:-
The first husband of Barkha Dutt
No one knows exact year of her marriage, but it is said that she married and then divorced a Kashmiri Muslim known as ‘Mir’. There is very less information about him except the rumor that he is a Kashmiri Muslim. Also, there are rumors that her marriage with Mir lasted only for 6 months.
This reminds me of a term ‘Starter marriage’ where the marriage leads to early divorce and the couple forget it really fast as this type of marriage is seen as a form marriage in which you have a marriage with different partners. That is the main reason she never came out in the open as for her it was just a starter marriage.

Another rumor is that after she got divorce from Mir. Barkha started dating and married the economist and chairman of Jammu and Kashmir Bank, Dr. Haseeb Drabu. According to source Mr. Haseeb was in the office from 2005 to 2010, so it is a rumor that she married him in that tenure.
He was dismissed from his position in 2010. Because of an IB report was confirmed that Mr. Drabu was sharing information of the bank with two organizations. Because of providing critical information to anti-India organization his interest was clear to sabotage Indian interest. So he was dismissed by the Omar Abdullah Government. Rumors are that he also anticipated a new separate currency for Jammu and kashmit naming it as ‘Karra’. After that he left Kashmir for Mumbai.
Mr. Dabru is currently finance minister of Jammu and Kashmir as he joined PDP, after that he even won the 2015 elections with a very high margin. Rumors are that Mr Dabru and Barkha were the main people who negotiated with BJP from the PDP side. And according to new gossips and rumors that couple are divorced now.
