The Mumbai police on Thursday, 27 June, lodged a complaint against actor Aditya Pancholi on charges of rape, extortion, wrongful restraint and criminal intimidation. The complaint was registered at the Versova police station in Mumbai, based on a complaint by a well-known actress.
NDTV.com quoted a confirmation from Mumbai police spokesperson Deputy Commissioner of Police Manjunath Shinge.
Reports suggest that the complaint has been filed regarding an event that allegedly occurred 10 years ago. The Versova police have lodged a First Information Report (FIR).
However, Pancholi has hit back with a statement saying that he is being 'falsely implicated'. In his statement to the Press Trust of India (PTI), the actor said, "It is a false rape case that they were planning and now they have done it. I was anticipating this. This was pre-planned as I had filed a defamation case against them."
"It is not a small allegation, the law will take its course, I will fight out... the truth will come out," added the 54-year old.
