Veteran actor Mithun Chakraborty’s son Mahaakshay was booked on Thursday for purportedly constantly raping an actress over a duration of three years and then obliging her into an abortion when she became pregnant. Chakraborty’s wife Yogita Bali was also named as an accused in the FIR. The case was first filed in Delhi and after the court’s order there, a fresh case was filed by the complainant in Mumbai.
In the police complaint filed by the woman, Mahaakshay reportedly invited her to his home in May 2015 and offered her a drink laced with a sedative. The report claims that he forcefully raped her that same day after she consumed the spiked drink. It also states that the woman was repeatedly sexually assaulted by the actor over the next three years.
According to the FIR, under the false sham and promise of marriage, Mahaakshay continued to sexually assault her. He ultimately married Indian actress Madalasa Sarma in 2018 but forced the plaintiff to abort a baby she had apparently conceived. According to police, Mithun’s wife Yogita was aware of her son’s actions but chose to stay mum about it.
Police have informed the media that the woman had also filed a complaint in Delhi in 2018 after moving to the capital. However, the court ruled that the probe should be taken on by Mumbai Police since the alleged offence took place in Mumbai.
The Chakraborty family is yet to make an official statement about this.
