The Mumbai Police on June 27 lodged a rape case against Bollywood actor Aditya Pancholi on a complaint filed by a well-known actress.

Mumbai Police spokesperson Deputy Commissioner of Police Manjunath Shinge confirmed the developments but declined to elaborate.

However, official sources said that the complaint has been filed against Pancholi in the matter that purportedly took place some 10 years ago when he had allegedly sexually assaulted the actress.

The Versova Police have lodged a first information report under various sections of the Indian Penal Code and launched a probe into the actress’ complaint.
