Actor Pratyusha Banerjee’s ex-boyfriend Rahul Raj Singh has found himself in hot water yet again after he was arrested for drink driving in Santacruz on Sunday night.
The Santacruz division of the Mumbai traffic police, along with the local police were conducting a nakabandi at Gajdhar Bandh in Santacruz (West), when they stopped Singh’s car. After checking whether he was inebriated, the traffic police constable realised Singh was not fit to be behind the wheel. Singh was then taken to the police station.
“Singh was accompanied by Saloni Sharma. She argued with the police and told them not to take action against Singh, failing which, she would complain to their superiors,” said Mumbai police spokesperson DCP Ashok Dudhe.
When Singh was taken to the police station, officials noted that he was not in possession of his driving license.
The Santacruz police registered a case against Singh for driving under the influence of alcohol. His vehicle was impounded by the traffic officials and his documents have been handed over to the local police, said a source in the traffic police. He was also charged with not carrying a license while driving.
Singh was allowed to go after he paid the penalty for both offences, officials said.
Singh made headlines after TV actress Banerjee committed suicide on April 1. Singh was booked for abetment of suicide in the case and has been charge-sheeted by the Bangur Nagar police.
In another case, model actor Heer Patel accused him of cheating her of Rs25,000. A case has been registered against Singh at Versova police station.
Recently, a molestation case was filed against Singh by a model after he allegedly molested her during a fight at an Andheri restaurant. The Amboli police is currently investigating the matter.
