Jackky Bhagnani has been charged with child molestation: The Mumbai Police has filed an FIR for rape and molestation against actor-producer Jacky Bhagnani and eight other high-profile film industry figures. A model-turned-songwriter who has also become an independent musician filed the case, according to Mid-Day on Monday.
According to the newspaper, the FIR names Jackky Bhagnani, the founder of talent management agency KWAN Entertainment, Anirban Blah, photographer Colston Julian, and T-Series’ Krishan Kumar.
The model had previously claimed that the police were taking too long to file an FIR in the case and that she had begun receiving death threats from one of the defendants.
According to the Daily, the woman first approached Dr Maheshwar Reddy, Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP), Zone 10, on May 10, who directed her to Andheri Police Station and ordered an officer to record her statement. Her testimony was recorded by the police after eight days, however, the matter was moved to Zone 9 DCP office in Bandra because most occurrences of claimed sexual assault occurred in that area between 2012 and 2019.
