Beyhadh actor Piyush Sahdev has been arrested on the charges of rape on 22nd November. He was arrested after a complaint against him at the Versova police station. Piyush Sahdev was last seen on the show ‘Beyhadh’ where he played the role of ‘Samay’. He has been charged with rape under section 376.
According to Senior Inspector Kiran Kale saying, “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.”
According to India today, ” Sahdev’s bail application was rejected by the court. He has now been shifted to Arthur Raod Jail.
Reports suggests that the actor had met the woman through mutual friends and soon moved in with her; he then proposed marriage to her after two months of their relationship. When the woman found some objectionable photographs of him with another girl, they had a nasty fight and the actor apparently refused to marry her. The woman then approached the police on November 20 and filed a rape case against him.
Piyush was married to Akanksha Rawat but he recently parted ways with him. He confirmed the news saying that he and his wife have mutually filed for separation and their divorce is in process. Meanwhile, there were also reports that the reason behind their separation is Piyush’s extra-marital affair with one of his colleagues from the creative team of the show Beyhadh.
His wife said, “I have not been in touch with Piyush since the last four months. So, I am not aware of anything.” The two have been living separately since April this year, and last month, she filed a police complaint for cruelty and harassment against him.
