Bigg Boss 13‘s one of the popular contestants Shehnaaz Gill has been in talks ever since she entered the house. Even after the show was over, Shehnaaz was everywhere in the limelight. It was just a few months later in May 2020, that Shehnaaz’s father Santokh Singh Sukh was falsely charged for raping a 40-year-old lady at gunpoint.
After he was charged for rape, he was in the headlines but he never opened up about what happened. In a recent interview with Spotboye, Santokh opened up about the case which was shut down after a month and a half later. He shared with the portal that it was a nightmare for him and his family.
He shared that the whole incident was fake and nothing ever happened like that. The lady who falsely accused him of rape was a friend of his best friend. His best friend and that lady had a heated argument after which his best friend was staying and Santokh’s place. His best friend specifically asks him not to tell her that he’s staying with him. But somehow the lady tracked his best friend, tried to meet him but as instructed Santokh didn’t let her come inside his home.
He said to the portal that he didn’t misbehave with her, and also have the CCTV footage of the incident. The lady filed an FIR against Santokh for not meeting his best friend but the police officials changed the complaint and accused him of raping her and demanded a hefty amount as Shehnaaz was popular by then. But during the hearing in the court, the lady while recording her statement admitted that nothing has happened.
Santokh also shared how hard it was for him and his family, he said, “I can’t tell you what a nightmare it was. For more than a month, my family and I were in stress. Even though we knew nothing was going to happen as I haven’t done anything and we have enough proof to prove that, still her act highly disturbed us.”
After the hearing of the case, the charges against Santokh were lifted and the case got a closure. The lady later apologized to him.
