TV actor Piyush Sahdev, popular for his roles in Beyhadh & Devon Ka Dev… Mahadev was recently accused of rape by a 23-year old fashion designer. The actor got arrested on November 22 after the victim filed an FIR, post which his bail plea got rejected and he was shifted to the Arthur Road jail.
Recent medical reports confirm that he is guilty of rape and he will be kept under judicial custody till the police files a charge sheet against him. According to a leading daily, Piyush met the victim through some mutual friends and eventually started dating & living in together. A couple of months later, he proposed to her but things took an ugly turn when she found objectionable pictures of him with another girl. They got into an argument after which Piyush refused to marry her & she filed a rape case against him.
Piyush did not exactly have a clean reputation before this either. His ex-wife, Akangsha Rawat allegedly left him earlier this year in April on charges of domestic violence. Since they have not been in touch at all, she had no clue about the rape case until after he was arrested.
His sister Meher Vij (Zaira Wasim’s mother in Secret Superstar) was also clueless about the news as she was not in touch with her brother after he got married. According to reports, Piyush will spend 3 months in jail till the investigations take place.
