Splitsvilla 8 Contestant Yash Pandit Charged for Rape


Mumbai: Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi actor Yash Pandit has been booked for allegedly raping a TV actress on the pretext of marriage. The actress claimed that Pandit raped the 28 year old actress several times at his Juhu residence.

According to the victim the police are not doing enough to rip off him because of “his family’s influential connections.”

As per the reports, Yash met the actress on the sets of a TV show in September this year and later invited her to his apartment in Juhu, where he allegedly raped her several times. In mid-November, he took her to his residence on the pretext of introducing her to his parents.

Speaking to mid-day, the survivor said, “He only had intentions of developing a physical relationship with me. He confessed to me that he had sexual relationships with other girls. They perhaps did not approach the cops, because they were scared of being defamed. But, I wanted to teach him a lesson to get his nefarious intentions out in public view.”

Senior police inspector Sunil Ghosalkar of Juhu Police station said, “We have taken the victim’s statements and registered an FIR against Yash Pandit and have already set up teams who have been raiding the places where we suspect him to have been hiding. I have already issued a memo to the investigating officer, and have replaced her. The newly-appointed officer in the case is already studying it and will be adding the sections wherever they are required.”
