Aditya Pancholi accused of rape by unnamed actress

BizAsia Correspondent



Mumbai Police has lodged a rape case against actor Aditya Pancholi after an accusation by an actress ten years ago.

Mumbai Police spokesperson Deputy Commissioner of Police Manjunath Shinge confirmed the news but was not in the position to elaborate. Reportedly, the alleged sexual assault took place around ten years ago.

Refuting the allegations, Pancholi told Cineblitz, “Whatever the truth is, it will come out. It was a premeditated plan to file a false rape case against me. Law will take its own course. All I have to say is that if some women misuse the law to frame a person in a rape case, what will happen to the actual victims and actual survivors. This is a 100 per cent false case and time will tell and law will take its own course. What if it is proved that it is not a rape case, what are they going to do about it? Are they going to put her in jail?”

The Versova Police has launched a probe into the actress’ complaint.
