Beyhadh actor Piyush Sahdev who has recently been seen hitting headlines for his divorce with Akangsha Rawat is under spotlight yet again.

According to reports, the popular television actor was arrested by Versova police on Wednesday for reportedly raping a 23-year-old fashion designer with whom he was in a live-in relationship for the last two months.

Mumbai police arrested Sahdev after the model lodged a complaint on November 20 and later produced him before the Andheri metropolitan magistrate court on Wednesday.

"Sahdev approached me during a fashion show event that was held a few months ago. He befriended me and promised to marry me after promising to teach me acting and also help me get into modeling. He got into a relationship with me and we both stayed together for two months," the 23-year-old lady said in her complaint.

"I also learned that Sahdev had initiated divorce proceedings against his wife," she added further.

However, according to police, Piyush will be kept in custody until November 27 and will be further moved towards the judicial proceedings.

"Sahdev has been booked under the Indian Penal Code Section 376(1) for rape," investigating officer Kiran Kale was quoted while talking about the same.

On the work front, Piyush Sahdev who was last seen in popular television series Beyhadh as an antagonist has also been part of Devon Ke Dev Mahadev, Sapne Suhane Ladakpan Ke, Geet, Har Ghar Kuch Kehta Hai and others.
