A popular face of TV, Ritu Khanna, has levelled molestation and threatening charges against Rakhi Sawant’s brother Rakesh Sawant. Ritu has featured in TV serials like Jhansi Ki Rani, Main Lakshmi Tere Aangan Ki and Shakuntala besides the very well known mystery series Crime Patrol.
Ritu and her boyfriend were supposedly out to sip a coffee at a restro where Rakhi Sawant’s brother, Rakesh was already present. According to her, Rakesh started passing lewd comments and also clicked her pictures.
Ritu’s boyfriend claimed that a similar experience happened with another couple who was sitting at the outlet. That couple had earlier complained about Rakesh’s behaviour to the restaurant manager just when Ritu and her partner were entering the place.
Ritu’s boyfriend added that as soon as he saw Rakesh clicking Ritu’s pictures, he called the police to lodge a complaint against the rowdy behaviour.
Police, on reaching the spot, took statements of both the parties and registered a complaint against Rakesh.
Rakesh was released on bond after he pleaded innocence. Police is investigating the footage from the CCTV at the coffee shop.
“These are completely false allegations. She is trying to use Rakhi and my name to gain publicity,” Rakesh insisted!
