The Bombay High Court on Thursday refused to grant actor Mithun Chakraborty’s wife and son any interim relief from arrest in a complaint of alleged rape and cheating filed by a woman in Delhi.
A court in Delhi had earlier stated that based on initial impression there are enough grounds for registration of an FIR against Chakraborty’s wife Yogita Bali and their son Mahaakshay aka Mimoh and to proceed further in accordance with the law.
Following the Delhi court order, Mahaakshay and his mother approached the Bombay High Court seeking interim relief from arrest till the time they approached the concerned court in the national capital.
Justice Ajey Gadkari on Thursday refused to grant them any relief and dismissed the pleas. He said that the duo could approach the court concerned in Delhi for pre-arrest bail.
In her plea, the complainant had alleged that Mahaakshay had cheated and raped her after being in a physical relationship for around four years on the pretext of marriage
The woman further alleged that following her pregnancy, she was given some medicine by Mahaakshay which eventually led to an abortion.
In the complaint, she claimed that Yogita Bali had threatened her of dire consequences if she continued the relationship with her son Mimoh.
The complainant also said in the court that she moved to Delhi from Mumbai following constant threats given by Bali and her son.
