A case has been registered at the Oshiwara police station against a well-known TV actor-singer for allegedly raping an astrologer under the pretext of marrying her. The accused even recorded a video on his mobile phone after sedating her and extorted money, alleges the woman, reports Mumbai Mirror.
The FIR registered by the victim suggests that she met the accused via a dating app in October 2016 and shortly after they became friends, she met him at his Andheri residence. The actor-singer promised to marry her. One day, when the woman went to his house, the accused allegedly gave her coconut water and soon after drinking it, the victim started feeling dizzy. In her statement, the woman revealed that it was then that the accused raped her and recorded the act on his phone.
“Using the video the victim blackmailed me and took money from me. However, whenever I asked him about marriage he kept ignoring it and would ask for more money. Recently, when I insisted on the marriage, he threatened me and said do whatever you want to do,” she stated in the FIR.
The astrologer went to the cops and lodged an FIR. A police officer said, “We have registered an FIR and a probe is on to verify the allegations made by the complainant.” The accused has been booked under relevant sections of the IPC for rape, extortion, threatening and causing hurt by means of poison.
