Beyhadh actor Piyush Sahdev who was recently accused of rape, landed in some serious legal troubles. He was arrested on rape charges earlier this month. The actor used to play Samay in the popular Sony TV show Beyhadh. A 23-year-old woman accused him of rape and filed an FIR against him. Recently, his bail application was rejected by the court, following which he was shifted to Arthur Road Jail.
According to Tellychakkar, the medical reports of Piyush Sahdev, who was charged under IPC section 376, confirmed rape.
Piyush Sahdev, who is known for his stint in shows like Devon Ke Dev Mahadev, Sapne Suhane Ladakpan Ke and Beyhadh, landed in legal soup when a 23-year-old aspiring actress alleged him of raping her on pretext of marriage on November 22.
The investigations are underway and chargesheet will soon be filed by the Versova Police. While speaking to Tellychakkar, Kiran Kale, Senior Inspector, Versova Police Station said, “He is still in jail and his charge sheet is being prepared; until then he is being kept in judicial custody and the investigation is going on alongside."
A Hindustan Times report suggested that Piyush met the actress through mutual friends and soon they started living under the same roof. He proposed marriage to her after two months of their relationship. The woman found some objectionable pictures of Piyush with some other girl after which they had an ugly fight. The actor refused to marry her following the altercation. The actress approached Mumbai Police on November 20 and filed a rape case against him.
Piyush Sahdev’s sister and actor Meher Vij said that she didn’t know anything about the charges. His former wife Akangsha Rawat also refused knowledge of the entire incident.
