It seems life has become a difficult proposition for Rahul Raj Singh. Just days after being charged of molestation, the boyfriend of late television actress Pratyusha Banerjee has now found himself under the fire yet again. This time, he has been booked and arrested for drunk driving. The incident took place in the Santacruz region of Mumbai on Sunday night. According to reports, the police had cordoned off the region when Rahul’s car passed. On being stopped, the police found excess level of alcohol in his blood. Rahul was allegedly driving with his ex-girlfriend, Saloni Sharma. Matters got worse when Saloni ended up arguing with the cops. Further, prima facie investigation also revealed that Rahul was driving without a licence.
“Rahul was accompanied by Saloni Sharma. She was arguing with the police to not take action, else she would complain to the superiors,” Mumbai police spokesperson DCP Ashok Dudhe said in a statement. “Rahul was brought to the Santacruz police station by the traffic police for the offence of driving under influence of alcohol. Saloni was arguing with the police to not take action else she would complain to superiors. They were brought before the night duty inspector Shrikant Desai and he tried to pacify them. But they still argued. Rahul was not possessing his driving license. Action taken for drunken driving and not possessing driving license vide LAC No 4600/16 and 4601/16,” said Mumbai Police spokesperson Ashok Dudhe said in a statement.
Rahul was charge sheeted for abetting the suicide of Pratyusha Banerjee in April this year. Point to note here is, that Saloni is the same girl who was accused of assaulting Pratyusha at her residence months before the actress hung herself. Saloni even went on to give a statement that that Rahul owed her a large amount of money and was cheating on her.
Rahul was last week booked in another case of molestation and assault after an actress alleged that he molested her in a restaurant and filed a complaint against him and his friend. In July too, Rahul was booked for allegedly cheating a starlet of her money and promising to make a film with her.
