Bollywood actor Inder Kumar, who starred in Salman Khan’s film ‘Wanted’, passed away on July 28 due to a massive heart attack. He was 44 years old.
It’s been a month and a lot has been spoken about his life choices and the fact that Inder was in acute depression which caused his health to deteriorate.
The late actor was accused of rape in 2014, as a model accused him of exploited her in the hopes of giving her a Bollywood break. After his death, the case was rendered null and void, but his wife Pallavi submitted an application in court to not shut the case.
Pallavi wants the proceedings to continue and the judge to give out a verdict. n an interview to Spotboye.com, she spoke about her decision.
She said, “According to the Indian law, if the accused or victim dies during the proceedings, the case gets null and void. But I know Inder was innocent and we will win the case. This is a false allegation put on him to extort money and get fame by maligning Inder’s name. That’s why I submitted an application yesterday in the court to keep the case open. Whatever suffering Inder was going through and the only reason for him being disturbed was this case.”
“Obviously, if someone will accuse you of such a horrible crime and you are sent behind bars because of it, anyone will get disturbed and stressed, especially when you are a celebrity, the whole world comes to know about it. So, every time he went for a hearing, he felt extremely humiliated. There was always this thought inside him that he hasn’t done anything wrong and still is suffering so much. Media has been reporting that Inder was in depression, yes, he was but only because of this case. It affected him a lot.” she added.
She further said “I have pleaded in the court to not close the case. I am very fortunate to have a lawyer like Mr. Ashok Sarogi who comes with an experience of 40 years and treated Inder like his son. When I asked him, ‘Sir, will this case also shut after Inder’s death’, he replied, ‘No! Who said that it will get shut? I will make sure that the girl gets punished for what she has done.”
“We were about to get the verdict in a few months and unfortunately Inder passed away before that. I am really upset that Inder will not be able to see it happen. So, we have put in an application in the court that as Inder’s wife, I will take the proceedings ahead and be present in the court on his behalf and get the verdict (justice for him).”
“Once the judgement is out, which I am 110% sure will be in our favour, we will file a case against the girl and make sure that that she is punished.” she concluded.
