Indian television star Parth Samthaan, who rose to the fame from MTV’s show Kaisi Yeh Yaariyan is now making headlines, not for the great work but for embroiling controversy.
In a recent development, Kaisi Yeh Yaariaan fame has been booked under molestation charges which are being filed by a 20-year-old girl, in which she claims the actor has molested her when she was 16-year-old.
It was reported that the FIR was filed in the previous month by an aspiring model who claims of receiving “insulting and shameful” calls and asking for ‘sexual favors’.
The victim said in a statement, “After returning from a party in an alcoholic state, Parth misbehaved with me. After which I stopped contact with him for some time and he really apologized and as we have been friends for years, I decided to forgive him for the behavior but soon after that, I started getting insulting and shameful calls from boys who would want favors from me”.
Although, this is not the first instance the actor has gained the public eye, earlier in the year 2016 he was booked for inappropriate behavior and molesting his producer Vikas Gupta.
However, the case is registered under Section 354 of the Indian Penal Code, Section 8 and 12 of the POSCO Act at Bangar Nagar Police Station.
