Piyush Sahdev who was last seen in a negative role in Beyhadh has been accused of raping a 23-year-old fashion designer. The Mumbai police arrested Piyush on Wednesday based on a complaint filed against him.
However, according to a news report in an entertainment portal, the girl apparently wasn’t keen on getting Piyush arrested and is repenting filing the case.
“The girl is a model looking for a break into the TV space. She approached the police with an expectation that they will cooperate with her and will only threaten Piyush without taking any strict action. However, the case here was dire (after all a rape allegation) and it is only after filing the report she realized what her actions have led to.
Also, she does not want herself or her family to be involved in any such controversy,” the source claimed.
Kiran Vasantrao Kale, senior inspector, Versova police station confirmed the news to a leading daily and said, “Yes, he has been charged with rape. An FIR was lodged against him on November 20. After investigations, we arrested him on November 22. He was produced in court on the same day and has been sent to police custody until November 27.”
When the leading daily contacted Piyush’s estranged wife Akangsha Rawat, she replied back saying, “I am not in touch with Piyush since almost 4 months, we separated six months back, so I have no idea if this news is true.”
Just a while back, he was in news when he confirmed separation with wife Akangsha. Talking about the reason of their relationship going kaput, Piyush had earlier said, “Our reason of parting ways now is that we both think very differently. Our lifestyle and ways of living are really different. We’ve always had problems because of this and were about to separate earlier but then eventually got back together thinking we’ll cope up but now we’re utterly sure that we can’t spend the rest of our lives this way.”
