A city-based small time actress Pooja Jadhav was arrested by police under Indian Penal Code (IPC) Section 395, punishment for robbery and dacoity, for allegedly duping a man and threatening to file a fake case of rape against him, according to the police.
The woman was allegedly working with four other women and a man to dupe the man who had paid to have sex with her, said Assistant Police Inspector (API) Somnath Naale of Bhasari police station.
According to the police, the woman had approached the police with a complaint against the said man claiming that he had raped her.“She got in touch with him over the phone, decided a rate of Rs 2000, had a physical relationship with the man at a lodge and then threatened him with a police case lest he paid Rs 5 lakh. Since he did not have the money, they asked him to marry her, to which he had agreed,” said API Naale.
Even after getting married to him, when she couldn’t shell out the money out of him, with the help of her accomplices she attacked him and stole Rs 6000 in his possession before bringing him to the Bhosari police station, the police said.
According to API Naale, the police suspected the girl’s story when she refused to file a complaint against him even though she had approached the police.“She had approached Bhosari police station two years ago and similar case had come to light back then as well, but the man involved had refused to file a complaint,” said API Naale.
The incident was reported on Friday and a case was registered in the early hours of Saturday. The court had remanded Jadhav to a day’s police custody on Tuesday. The police have identified her alleged accomplices and have recovered a car which was used in the process, the police said. The police are on a lookout for three of the four women, said API Naale.The woman has worked in short films by a Mumbai-based production house, according to the police.
