The Oshiwara police on Friday night arrested Bhojpuri actor Raja Chaudhary after a police officer lodged a complaint against him for committing affray at his girlfriend’s home in Oshiwara.
Chaudhary’s allegedly attacked his girlfriend Shradha Sharma, who is undergoing treatment at Sujay Hospital in Juhu. The police have booked Sharma but will arrest her after she is discharged from hospital.
According the police, they received a call just after noon that Chaudhary was creating a ruckus at Sharma’s residence. Hearing loud commotion and knowing the cause for it, the neighbours alerted the police.
“A police constable was sent to Sharma’s residence, who witnessed Chaudhary and Sharma in a scuffle. Based on his information, a complaint was registered with the Oshiwara police station,” said KMM Prasanna, deputy commissioner of police (zone 9).
According to Flynn Remedios, Sharma’s manager and secretary, Chaudhary entered her house around 3am on Friday using an extra pair of keys. He slept in the living room. Around 10am, when Sharma woke up, she refused to let him in her bedroom. Angry, Chaudhary reportedly broke the door and assaulted her. “She has sustained bruises and scratches all over her body and was rushed to the hospital by the neighbours,” said Remedios.
“We sent Chaudhary for medical examination to ascertain whether he was under the influence of alcohol when the incident took place. The reports for the same have come positive. We are now waiting for Sharma to be discharged from the hospital following which we will be arresting her as well. Chaudhary has been sent to the general lock up at Andheri,” Prasanna said.
Sharma’s neighbours have often complained to her as well as the police about the inconvenience caused by the couple to the residents.
Chaudhary was in the limelight recently for slapping his former wife Shweta Tiwari, who had lodged a non-cognisable complaint against him with the Malad police for the same.
