Jackky Bhagnani & 8 Others Accused of Molestation

A 28-year-old former model has filed a complaint of rape and molestation against Jackky Bhagnani & 8 other Bollywood personalities.

A 28-year-old former model has filed a complaint of rape and molestation at the Bandra police station against nine Bollywood personalities. The model has claimed that the alleged sexual harassment took place between the period of 2014 and 2019. This caused her mental trauma. Among the accused are actor-producer Jackky Bhagnani, photographer Colston Julian, founder of talent management company Kwan Entertainment - Anirban Blah and Krishan Kumar owner of T-series, Nikhil Kamat, Sheel Gupta, Producer Ajit Thakur, Gurujyot Singh, and Vishnu Induri. Further investigation is underway in this case.

The FIR mentions that she was raped by Colston Julian while the others have been accused of molestation. The complainant said that she has submitted all pieces of evidence against her alleged abusers, still "Why are the police further delaying the arrest of the accused?" When asked about the reason behind this, inspector Sagar Nikam said that they were currently "collecting the pieces of evidence that the survivor claims to possess against the accused" and that their "investigations are underway." 

A woman police officer has already accompanied the complainant to visit the locations in Mumbai, where she had been allegedly sexually assaulted. According to the woman, Colston Julian has gone underground, as his Bandra house was locked and his car was not there when they visited his abode. Also, Jackky Bhagnani, the son of famous producer Vashu Bhagnani is reportedly not in India at the moment, and will return to Mumbai in September. This is not the first time Anirban Blah has been accused of sexual assault. In 2018, he was named in the #MeToo movement as well by four women. When his partners instructed him to resign from his post, Blah admitted to his crimes in a letter, and even "tried to commit suicide."
