In a shocking incident, a 55-year-old doctor has been arrested for allegedly raping and blackmailing a 21-year-old model-cum-actor. According to the Versova police, the two became friends after they met at the end of 2017 through a mutual friend. She was referred to the accused doctor for skin treatment.
"They had come into contact while she was working in a serial. We've filed FIR under multiple IPC sections. He has been sent to police custody till 10 May. Investigation on," police said.
During the investigation, police found that some amount of money was transferred to the model’s account by the doctor. The woman accused that on one occasion the doctor took some private pictures of her and started blackmailing her.
The accused threatened the model of making her pictures public if she thought of approaching the police. A complaint was registered last week following which the doctor was arrested on Sunday from Chembur.
Further investigating in the case is going on and cops are gathering evidence to file a charge-sheet in the case. “We have interrogated the doctor and we will also be gathering technical evidence to file a watertight charge-sheet in the case,” the police was quoted as saying in a media report.
