Aditya Pancholi Granted Interim Protection Till August 3 In Rape Case
On Friday, actor Aditya Pancholi was granted interim relief by Mumbai Sessions court in a rape case filed against him by a Bollywood actress. The Dindoshi Sessions court granted relief to the actor as the public prosecutor has sought time to go through the papers of investigating agencies.

An FIR was filed against the actor on June 27 at the Versova Police station under sections 376 (rape), 328 (causing hurt by means of poison, etc. with intent to commit an offence), 384 (extortion), 341 (wrongful restraint), 342 (wrongful confinement), 323 (voluntarily causing hurt) and 506 (criminal intimidation) of the Indian Penal Code. This was based on a detailed statement given out by a leading actress, who accused the actor of mental and physical torture, rape and blackmail.


The actress shared her complete story with Mid-Day and made some serious accusations against the actor. In a two-and-a-half page statement to Versova Police the actress has stated that, "In the year 2004, I came to Mumbai with a dream of becoming a big actor someday in the film industry. In 2004 itself, I met actor Aditya Pancholi who was then 38 year old,almosy 22 year older than me and I was staying at a hostel with group of girls, Aditya was married with two childrens, his daughter was of my age then."


"In 2014 only, I went to a party along with him and some time after having a drink I started feeling dizzy, then only I suspected that he (Pancholi) spiked my drinks. After party got over, Pancholi said, he will drop me at my home so I went along with him in his Range Rover Car, in the middle of the Yari road he stopped his car and got physical with me forcefully and he also took my photographs which I wasn't aware. On the next we met again and he told me that now we have husband and wife like relations between us and we will live together like husband and wife, I told him,that you are of my father's age and I will marry someone who is of my age. Then he showed all my photographs he took inside his car and started blackmailing and  threatening me of showing these pictures to others, at that time I was quite young, I had no one in Mumbai and he took the advantage of same," actress further stated in her statement.
