Mumbai: Pintu Mishra, 34 years driver of Shah rukh khan’s driver was arrested on Wednesday by the Bandra Police allegedly for raping a 17-year-old maid of Sangeeta Bijlani, after he waylaid her on the pretext of finding her a better job. The accused was a driver employed by Shah Rukh Khan occasionally. The report states that he had been employed by the actor in the past to drive his childrens to school and back. The victim girl worked for former actress Sangeeta Bijlani.
Mid-Day reports, “According to the Bandra police, the 17-year-old had come to Mumbai five months ago from her hometown, Latur, where her mother stays. She got a job as a maid in the house of the actress.”It is not clear yet how and where Mishra met the victim. However, reports suggest that ever since he saw her, he wanted to befriend her. He finally managed to get the victim’s number and called her, saying that he would find her a better paying job in Shah Rukh Khan’s house.
A Times of India report says, “When Mishra called the maid’s number, reportedly the actress herself picked up the phone and learnt of her maid’s plans to quit, and the maid was sacked after clearing her dues. Mishra then took her to Nalasopara on the pretext of helping her out with a place to stay.”
In Nalasopara, Mishra reportedly raped the girl.
Mid-Day quotes a source close to Khan as saying, “The driver arrested has nothing to do with SRK or his family. He has driven the car for the kids on a few occasions. Otherwise, he drives one of the vehicles that are part of Khan’s convoy.”
