Popular television actor of Beyhadh fame Piyush Sahdev has been arrested on rape charges.
On November 22, television actor Piyush Sahdev was arrested by Versova Police on rape charges. The Beyhadh fame actor will remain in Police custody until November 27. After that, the case will move towards judicial proceedings.
The girl, reportedly a model, filed an FIR with the Versova Police Station against Piyush Sahdev on November 20. Reportedly, the girl is said to be in a living-in relationship with Piyush since the last two months.
As reported by Time Of India, Versova Police’s senior inspector Kiran Kale confirmed Piyush Sahdev’s arrest and stated that “Sahdev has been booked under the Indian Penal Code section 376 (1) (rape),”
Recently Piyush Sahdev was in news for his divorce with actress Akangsha Rawat. When asked about the same, Piyush explained that he and his ex-wife were living separately for a while before heading for divorce.
Before their separation and subsequent divorce, there were rumours afloat of the couple going through a rough patch. Though initially, Piyush and Akangsha’s common friends thought of it to be normal marital friction. It was only after Akangsha statements about her plans on shifting base to South Africa, that people realized something was amiss.
During the time when the news of their divorce was at the peak when asked about his rumoured affairs, Piyush had stated that those baseless rumours were just adding to his misery. He even implored to not spread the said rumours as he was going through a rough phase in his life at that time.
Piyush Sahdev had played the antagonist in Beyhadh earlier this year. The actor also underwent a makeover after losing 38 kilos, which he was put on after being bedridden as an aftermath of a knee surgery. Piyush Sahdev has also been a part of popular television shows like Devon Ke Dev Mahadev, Sapne Suhane Ladakpan Ke, Geet and Har Ghar Kuch Kehta Hai.
