Rakhi’s arrest kept on hold: Report
According to a report in ETimes, Rakhi was most likely to be produced in front of the magistrate but the actress was bailed and her arrest has been kept on hold on humanitarian grounds.
Sherlyn Chopra’s lawyer Suhail Shariff told the news portal that Rakhi produced a medical certificate of her mother which shows she is in critical condition. Based on this and on humanitarian grounds, Sherlyn and her lawyer are reportedly not pressing for her arrest as of now.
It has also been reported that Rakhi cooperated in the interrogation and she has also handed over her mobile phone to the cops for further investigation.
Why was Rakhi arrested?
Rakhi was arrested by Amboli police on January 19 for questioning and investigation regarding the case of circulating video of actor-model Sherlyn Chopra.
Sherlyn had filed a complaint against Rakhi for using ‘objectional language’ in November 2022. Reportedly, she had also alleged that Rakhi released her objectionable photos and videos on social media platforms. Sherlyn had also called Rakhi ‘gutter mouth’ and ‘potty mouth’.
Rakhi’s anticipatory bail was rejected on Wednesday at Dindoshi Court. She was supposed to inaugurate her dance academy with her husband on Thursday at 3 pm.
