A day after noted singer Mika Singh was booked in an alleged molestation case, he has found support in none other than his friend-turned-foe-turned friend again Rakhi Sawant.
A 32-year-old model had on Wednesday (July 6) filed a complaint of molestation against Mika Singh even as the Bollywood singer lodged a counter-complaint alleging extortion. An FIR under sections 354 (outraging woman’s modesty), 323 (voluntary causing hurt) and 504 (intentional insult) of IPC was registered at the suburban Versova police station on the basis of the complaint, a senior police official said.
It is not the first time when Mika’s name has been dragged into a controversy. Remember the first time he came into the limelight, his kissing controversy with Rakhi Sawant.
While talking to Timesofindia, Rakhi Sawant said, “Mika is a changed man now. He is my best friend and I share a very good rapport with his entire family. I know that man will never do something like this. You can call me his buddy, lawyer whatever you want but I know for sure Mika is innocent. He is the number one singer of this country and he doesn’t need to all this. He called me recently and told that he has been accused by this fraud girl. He asked me to help him and told that I should tell the media whatever happened in behalf of him.”
On being asked what exactly happened between the girl and Mika, Rakhi revealed, “This girl is lying. She wants to create controversies and get an entry into shows like Bigg Boss and Splitsvilla. These young girls, who now come in the industry they don’t want to work hard, they all look for shortcuts. This girl has been after Mika for the past two-three years. She has been lying that she is a singer, model, designer and what not. She was chasing Mika to meet her, but he has been ignoring her. One night she entered his office and started tearing her clothes to prove that Mika had molested her. Mika got scared and called few women from NGO who tried to sort things out, but she started abusing even them. For the first time I saw tears in Mika’s eyes. He told me I want to settle down in life. Why all this is happening to me I am a changed man now. I completely believe him. Mika Singh is Valmiki for me. Whatever happened between us was 10 years back and we have forgotten about it. Rakhi and Mika never took shortcuts in life. Whatever we have earned in life today is because of our hard work. I don’t want this girl to take advantage of someone’s innocence. Modiji is working hard and making strict laws for crime against women. But women like this are misusing these laws. I am shocked and I condemned this.”
Denying the charge, Mika filed a counter-complaint later in the evening, saying the model was trying to extort money from him.Mika told police the woman had demanded Rs five crore from him and threatened to ruin his career if he did not pay, but he refused. No arrest has been made in the case.
