Actor held for exploiting aspring actress


An actor of the Tollygunj film industry in Kolkata was arrested on Saturday for allegedly raping a Kolkata-based model on the promise of giving her a break in the film industry.

The actor, Aniket Daw, also clicked nude photos of the model while holidaying with her at Mandarmani and other tourist destinations in Bengal.

Said an officer of the Regent Park police station, where the model has lodged a complaint, "The actor took her to different locations in Bengal and had physical relation with her. He is also accused of promising her a break in Tollywood film industry."

But the model did not get any opportunity in the film industry. After six months, the girl approached police and filed an FIR. In it she wrote, "Aniket threatened me that if I pushed the matter further he would forward all my private photographs to various producers and directors of film industries known to him. I was worried after that and decided to inform the police."

After receiving the complaint last night, Regent Park police swung into action and arrested Aniket from his South Kolkata residence. Police have recovered pictures of the models from his laptop and camera memory cards.

He would be produced before the Alipore sessions court on Saturday.
