The Bollywood industry seems all glitzy and glamorous, but it has its dark side too. From fraud to cheating, from unprofessional behaviour to real life fights and accusations, we’ve seen it all. But there have been instances when some of them were accused of sexual assault.
Here we list down Bollywood celebs who have been accused of such a crime.
In the year 2009, the ‘Gangster’ star Shiney Ahuja made it to headlines when he was arrested by the Oshiwara Police following an FIR filed by his maid. Ahuja’s maid claimed that the actor raped her when the two were alone at his residence and then kept her locked in the room for two hours. Ahuja was then arrested and punished with seven year imprisonment. Later, he was granted bail as the maid wavered from her statement and said that Shiney didn’t rape her and she charged him with false allegations.
Singer Ankit Tiwari, who rose to fame with his sensational song ‘Sun Raha Hai Na’ from ‘Aashiqui 2’, had been accused of falsely raping his girlfriend after promising her of marriage. According to reports, his 28-year-old girlfriend filed a case of raping her at several occasions between October 2012 and December 2013. Ankit had reportedly forced his girlfriend to consume alcohol and then forced her into a sexual assault. Post this, he had promised to marry her, but he failed to keep up with his promise citing that his family didn’t approve of his relationship with the model, stated reports.
