A model-with-TV actress accused a pilot of raping her on the pretext of marriage, a police officer said Monday.
The woman filed a complaint with the Oshiwara Police Station in suburban Mumbai last week, which resulted in an FIR being filed against the defendant on Monday, he said.
In her statement to police last December, the actress said she met the defendant, a professional pilot, on a marriage website and that he had promised to marry her, the official said.
After that, the pilot from Bhopal, who currently lives in Mumbai, often spoke to her on the phone and also spoke to her on social media platforms, he said.
About 10 days ago, he called the victim and said he wanted to meet and see her home as well, police said.
The actress, who lives alone in Mumbai, agreed and called him home where he allegedly raped her, the official said, citing the complaint. The defendant later assured the victim that he would introduce her to his parents to discuss their marriage, but never kept his words.
The television actress got fed up with his behavior and filed the complaint. Further investigations are ongoing.
