Mumbai Rape case filed against actor Mithun Chakraborty's son

    Mumbai, Oct 17 (PTI) Mumbai Police have registered a
case against veteran actor Mithun Chakraborty's son Mahaakshay
and the former's wife Yogita Bali on a complaint of rape and
cheating filed by a woman, an official said on Saturday.
    The case was registered at Oshiwara police station on
Thursday night based on the complaint lodged by the 38-year-
old woman, he said.
    "The complainant said she was in a relationship with
Mahaakshay Chakraborty from 2015 to 2018 and during that
period he had promised to marry her," the official said.
    "The woman said that during their relationship, she
had gone to see Mahaakshay'sflat at Adarsh Nagar in Andheri
West, which he had purchased in 2015. She said when she went
there, the accused offered her a spiked soft drink and forced
her to have physical relations with him," he added.
    "The woman alleged that when she became pregnant,
Mahaakshay asked her to abort the baby and gave her pills," he
    "The woman said she used to ask Mahaakshay about their
marriage. But in January 2018, he told her that he cannot
marry her, which led to an altercation between them. She said
when she called him, his mother Yogita Bali threatened her,"
the official said.
    The complainant later went to Delhi with her brother
to stay with their family friend. There, she lodged a
complaint against Mahaakshay and his mother Yogita Bali at
Begumpur police station in June 2018, he added.
    The police had registered an offence under section 376
(rape), 313 (causing miscarriage without woman's consent) and
others, and the probe was transferred to the crime branch
there. A Delhi court later granted anticipatory bail to
Mahaakshay and his mother in the case.
    In March 2020, the Delhi High Court had asked the
woman to file her complaint in the court, where the offence
had taken place. Following that, she filed a complaint at
Oshiwara police station in July this year, the official said.
    "Accordingly, an offence under IPC sections 376
(rape), 376 (2) (n) (repeated rape), 328 (causing hurt by
means of poison), 417 (cheating), 506 (criminal intimidation)
and 34 (common intention) has been registered against the
accused," he said, adding that a probe is on.

3D" and "Loot". PTI DC
