It was some time during last week that Santokh Singh, father of Bigg Boss 13 fame Shehnaaz Gill, was booked by the Punjab police over the accusations of raping a woman on gunpoint. The alleged incident took place on May 14. As per the accuser, Santokh Singh raped her inside his car and also threatened to kill her and drop her at the border. Soon after, an FIR was registered against him. Santokh Singh, however, has denied all the accusations.
Now, as per a report in Bollywood Life, Shehnaaz Gill’s brother Shehbaz has rushed to Punjab to be by his father’s side in his legal fight. Reportedly, Shehbaz drove all the way from Delhi to Amritsar in his friend’s car. Santokh Singh, on the other hand, has appealed to the higher authorities to do a complete investigation in regards to this matter. Reportedly, he has also written to some of the top police officials of Amritsar and that he is trying his best to prove his innocence.
According to a local news channel of Punjab, Santokh Singh is expected to submit his evidence in a few days. The channel added how Bigg Boss 13 winner Sidharth Shukla has been in constant touch with Sana and her family in such tough times.
Reacting to the allegations on him, Santokh Singh had recently claimed that he is innocent and will soon prove it. His statement read, “Main nirdosh hun mere khilaf bahut badi sajish ho rahi hai mujhe badnaam karne ki. 2 din mein clear kar dunga Shuddh manoranan par maine request ki hai Ssp sahib vikram duggal se ke vah personal enquiry karen Agar main 1% bhi gunahgar hoon to mujhe Fansi bhi manjur hai main kuch bhi galat Nahi kiya mera Vishwas karo aur plz shehnaz shehbaz ko target mat karo maine kabhi kisi ka bura nahin kiya ummid hai sacchi ki jeet hogi Jai Hind.”
