Shah Rukh Khan’s driver arrested for raping minor

A driver who works with superstar Shah Rukh Khan, Rajendrakumar Gautam has been arrested for allegedly raping a girl who works at former beauty queen and actress Sangeeta Bijlani’s house, said an official from Bandra police station and added that the investigation is going on.

“The case was registered here Wednesday evening and the investigation is going on. At the moment, we are not allowed to talk about the case as the investigation department is looking after it,” the official told IANS.

The driver Rajendrakumar alias Pintu Mishra, 34, who is reportedly not SRK’s personal driver, called the 17-year-old at a hotel in Nallasopara here, on the pretext of offering her a job, where he raped her.

Mishra is apparently King Khan’s logistics driver and has never been the actor’s personal driver, as he allegedly claimed when he introduced himself to the maid. Mishra had apparently managed to get the maid’s phone number via a friend. One report mentions a source claiming that Mishra was entrusted with the job of ferrying the actor’s children between school and home. Apparently, SRK’s driver lured this 17 year old girl who had been working at the actress’ home for the last five to six months, into getting a better work opportunity at SRK’s home and took her to a lodge in Nalasopara where he allegedly raped her. When Mishra called on the maid’s number, reportedly the actress who was married to a former cricketer herself picked up the phone and learnt of her maid’s plans to quit, and the maid was sacked after clearing her dues. Mishra then took her to Nalasopara on the pretext of helping her out with a place to stay. The Bandra police has booked him under various IPC sections.

Although the girl is said to be a minor, the police are checking her date of birth to get the right age.

“We are also checking the victim’s date of birth certificate to check if she is still a minor or not,” another official from Bandra police station told IANS.

The girl, who came to the city from Latur (Maharashtra) in search of a job, got the opportunity to work at Sangeeta’s house.
