Small-time Bollywood actress Huma Khan, of
Maine Pyaar Kiya and
Hum Saath Saath Hain fame, and a male acquaintance have been arrested on allegations of kidnapping, rape and criminal intimidation of a minor girl, police said today.
The 12-year-old victim was working as a maid servant in the actress' household at Bhayendar in the neighbouring district of Thane, police said.
Khan and her male acquaintance had taken the victim to Pune, where the latter allegedly raped her, they said.
Both the accused were arrested yesterday, police said, adding that the actress has been charged with kidnapping and attempt to murder while the acquaintance has been booked for rape.
Khan featured in a string of C-grade films in the late 80s and 90s. She was seen in many horror films made by the Ramsay brothers.
The starlet, who has not been there in the Bollywood scene for sometime now, has been sent to five days of judicial custody after being charged by the Mira Road police.
