a 30-year-old beautician filed the complaint.
Kumar Hegde, who is reportedly Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut’s personal bodyguard, has been accused of rape.
Mumbai police registered an FIR against the bodyguard for his alleged involvement in a sexual assault case.
The case has been filed at DN Nagar Police Station.
Kumar Hegde has reportedly been booked under sections 376 and 377 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).
According to reports, a 30-year-old beautician filed the complaint.
She alleged that Kumar Hegde raped her after promising marriage to her.
According to the complaint, Hegde promised to marry her in June 2020. He also suggested that the pair live together, which she agreed to with the hope of marrying him.
The bodyguard and beautician knew each other for eight years.
However, she is now accusing him of forcing her into a physical relationship against her will.
Also in her complaint, she alleged that Hegde took £485 from her on April 27, 2021. He fled, saying that his mother is unwell and he has to go back to his hometown.
He has reportedly been unreachable since.
Speaking of the case, Senior Police Inspector Bharat Gaikwad of DN Nagar Police Station said:
“A case has been registered against a man named Kumar Hegde under sections 376 and 377 IPC.
“Prima facie, they had a live-in relationship and a break-up.”
However, Gaikwad also revealed that the police are yet to confirm whether Kumar Hegde is actually Kangana Ranaut’s personal bodyguard.
When asked to confirm Hegde’s identity as Ranaut’s bodyguard, Gaikwad said:
“Police ko pata nahin woh kya kaam karta hai (The police is not aware of what work he does).”
Section 376 under the IPC pertains to rape, while section 377 refers to unnatural sex.
The bodyguard is also booked under section 420 of the IPC, which pertains to cheating.
A friend of the victim, Divya Kotian, has also accused the bodyguard of taking drugs before sex.
Speaking to ABP News about the allegations, Kotian said:
“Kumar Hegde used to have unnatural sex with my friend.
“He used to get drugged heavily before sex and treat my friend in a very aggressive manner during sex.”
Kotian also alleged that Hegde was interested in boys as well as girls, and that her friend was on the verge of suicide as a result of the rape.
All the cases against Hegde came after a medical examination and a statement from the victim on Wednesday, May 19, 2021.
Kangana Ranaut is yet to comment on the matter.
