Mumbai: Popular TV actress Pratyusha Banerjee was molested by a few men who forcibly entered her residence Monday evening and created a ruckus recently. The men claimed to be cops.
She has filed an FIR against eight men, including three policemen.
Pratyusha said that eight people barged into her Kandivali residence and asked for her friend, actor Rahul Raj Singh. When the actress told them that he was not at home, they forcefully tried to barge inside.
“I’m extremely upset with whatever happened last evening. If this is how policemen are going to behave, then what to do? I have filed an FIR against eight men, of whom three are policemen,” Pratyusha said.
“They entered my house, pushed my door, they were misbehaving with me and were so rude. It took me three hours to convince the police to file the FIR since police themselves were also involved in it. Today, I am going to meet the (area) DCP,” she said.
Apparently, it’s all got to do with a car loan that Rahul Raj Singh had taken from a bank and had been irregular in his repayments.
Pratyusha said: “On the night of December 31, the bank had sent a recovery agent to my place for a Rs.5,000 EMI for the month of December without even informing us. The man had come drunk and was not ready to leave even after we gave the money. So, Rahul took matters in hand and sent him out of the house.
“Last night, they again came to my house. I told them Rahul does not live here and that’s when all this happened,” she added.
The actress, who is best known for her portrayal of Anandi in ‘Balika Vadhu’, is shocked because of the terrifying incident.
Pratysha had appeared in reality show Bigg Boss after quitting ‘Balika Vadhu’ and had also been part of ‘Sasural Simar Ka’.
