COURT REJECTS BAIL PLEA OF ACTOR ACCUSED OF MOLESTATION
The Dindoshi sessions court on Saturday rejected an anticipatory bail application filed by TV actor Parth Samthaan, who was booked in a molestation case in March, after a 20-year-old aspiring model claimed that he demanded sexual favours from her.
The woman, a resident of Malad (West), approached the Bangur Nagar police for a second time on April 23, saying Samthaan also molested her when she was 16.
The police charged the actor under the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act.
Samthaan’s advocates filed an anticipatory bail application in the Dindoshi session court. After Samthaan did not appear for the hearing on Friday, the court directed him to be present on Saturday.
Advocate Falguni Bhrambhatt, who represented the complainant, confirmed that he was.
