MUMBAI: Shahrukh Khan’s driver, Rajendrakumar Guatam alias Pintu Mishra (34), a resident of Asaipha in Andheri was arrested by the Bandra police for raping a 17-year-old maid, who used to work at the house of a Bollywood actress.
The Indian reports stated that the accused befriended the survivor on the pretext of offering her a job and then lured her to a hotel in Nallasopara, where he raped her.
The Bandra police revealed that the minor survivor came to Mumbai five months ago, where she got a job at the house of the Bollywood actress.
Gautam trapped the girl by contacting her through a common friend and called her up on June 18. On the call he managed her to believe that he has got a good job for her which could pay her higher salary than she is getting now.
Gautam and the minor girl started talking on a regular basis and Gautam even took her at Shahrukh’s house once. During their conversation which lasted for months, Gautam convinced the girl to quit the job so he could take him for a better job accommodation. He convinced the girl to take her to his home town, which is in Nallasopara, despite not having a house there.
After the minor quitting her job on June 20, they left for Bandra, spent some time there and left for Nallasopara, where Gautam took the girl to a hotel, where he brutally raped her and threatened her with dire consequences.
The girl came back to Mumbai on June 21, where she filed a complaint against Gautam. Guatam was arrested in the afternoon and has been charged under section 376 (rape) of the IPC. He will be produced in the Session Court today.
On this incident, Shahrukh Khan stated that the driver has nothing to do with him or his family. He only drove car on few occasion for the kids.
