Reality show contestant arrested for raping minor girl
The girl was abandoned near an eatery in Andheri in a semi-conscious state on Monday. She later called her parents and informed them about the incident.
Aditya Gupta, a dancer who had earlier participated in a reality show on television, was arrested by the Crime Branch unit IX yesterday in connection with the offence, he said. The accused recently approached the 17-year-old girl, a resident of suburban Andheri, on social media. The two subsequently met in Andheri on Sunday, he said.
Based on the CCTV footage of the area and her call data records, the police arrested the accused from his residence last evening, the official said. The man was handed over to officials at the D N Nagar police station, where the girl's father had registered a case of kidnapping on Monday after she did not return home.
