Rahul Raj Singh, boyfriend of Pratyusha Banerjee who was allegedly embroiled in controversy after the actress’ suicide, has now landed in hot water again. An actress has alleged that Rahul molested her in a restaurant and has filed a complaint against him and his friend. According to reports, the actress — who has not been named — has stated that the incident took place at an Andheri, Mumbai restaurant.
Complicating the case even further, Rahul and his friend also reportedly filed an FIR against the actress. Apparently Rahul was at a restaurant when the actress reached there with a male friend. An altercation took place and Rahul attacked the actress’ friend. According to a report in a tabloid, the actress said, “Rahul seemed to be in an inebriated state.
At 12.30 am, when we were entering the restaurant, Rahul saw us and suddenly became furious. He approached us and started arguing with my friend and even hit him. When I tried stopping Rahul, he abused and hit me as well. When I approached Rahul’s female friend, who was with him at restaurant, she too misbehaved and said that whatever Rahul did was right.”
A police officer from Amboli police station said, “We have filed a cross case under section 354, 509, 504 and 34 of IPC. We will verify CCTV footage and take statements in the matter. Further investigations are on before arresting anyone.”
Both the FIRs have been registered under sections 354 (sexual harassment), 324 (voluntarily causing hurt using dangerous weapon), 509 (word, gesture or act intended to insult the modesty of a woman) and 504 (intentional insult with intent to provoke breach of the peace) and 34 (common intention) of the Indian Penal Code.
The actor has been booked for abetting Pratyusha’s suicide and is currently out on bail.
