The stringent sections of POCSO were added against the actor after the 20-year-old complainant in her second statement on Sunday claimed that Samthaan had also molested her four years ago, when she was 16 years old.

Samthaan has acted in se veral Hindi television shows, including `Kaisi Yeh Yaariyan’ and `Best Friends Forever?’ The case was filed in March following a statement by the aspiring model, who claimed that Samthaan had demanded sexual favours from her. According to the police, the complainant who lives in Evershine Nagar, Malad (West), was acquainted with the accused.

The FIR states that Parth misbehaved with model Sushmita Chakravarty while he was drunk. The incident apparently happened on February 20. Sushmita had said that she knew Parth since she was 16. In her official statement last month, the model had said:

“I have known him for more than 4 years. Parth has on many occasions tried to propose me- not for a relationship but having a good time. Which I have very politely turned down. It might be cool in his group for women to sleep around with him and I have no issues with other girls and the choices they make but I have a different value system. After returning from a party in an alcoholic state, Parth misbehaved with me. After which I stopped contact with him for some time and he really apologised and as we have been friends for years, I decided to forgive him for the behaviour but soon after that, I started getting insulting and shameful calls from boys who would want favours from me.”

“Someone was sharing my number with people. Parth actually tried to show that he is helping me but in reality, he was the one out of vengeance doing it. His Whatsapp controversy where they made a group called whores and more whores where he shared details about women and his voice notes are available. The voice notes clearly mention me and him stating that I have a bad character and I am easy. Last week of January, the last time I met him, he again misbehaved with me and I informed my mother who then gave me the strength to file the FIR.”

Police officials said they are probing the matter and no arrest has been made yet as the actor has moved the Dindoshi court seeking anticipatory bail.
