Beyhadh actor Piyush Sahdev has been heading towards rough phase in his life. The actor has been arrested for raping a girl who is a model and a fashion designer. The girl has filed the case against the actor at Versova police station.

Talking abut the issue, a source told a leading Indian daily, “The model has accused Piyush of raping her. After she filed a case with the Versova police, Piyush was picked up from his house and arrested. As of now, the police have put him in custody until November 27, and he won’t be given a bail till then.”

Confirming the news to a leading Indian daily, senior inspector Kiran Vasantrao Kamle said, “Yes, he has been charged with rape. An FIR was lodged against him on November 20. After investigations, we arrested him on November 22. He was produced in court on the same day and has been sent to police custody till November 27.”

Piyush Sahdev’s sister Meher Vij got jolted by the news and divulged that she has not been in contact with Piyush ever since he got married.

“I have got to know this from you. When did this happen. I don’t know anything at all. You know I haven’t been able to get in touch with my father so I too do not know anything about this news. Actually, Piyush and I haven’t been in touch at all ever since he got married. His wife had some issues so I chose to back off. Whatever contact we have had, has been only through our father ever since then,” said Meher.

A source close to the development revealed that the issue occurred when Piyush was dumping his alleged girlfriend from the Beyhadh team with an unpopular actress.

“Piyush recently went for a holiday with the actress where he got sexually involved with her. After coming back, he chose to end the relationship. Meanwhile, she had become a little serious about him. But with his negligent behaviour, she got irked. Piyush blackmailed her, threatening to leak her obscene pictures over the internet. The actress paid no heed to him. This irked Piyush who actually leaked a few pictures,” said the source.
