Three women from tv industry including Heer Patel and Kesha Khambhati, have made allegations on Pratyusha’s boy friend Rahul Raj Singh claiming that he has cheated them of lakhs of rupees.
Incident of Pratyusha’s suicide has triggered a hard time for Rahul who is hospitalised for the third consecutive day in Mumbai. Meanwhile the three women, who have allegedly been cheated by her boyfriend Rahul Raj Singh, came out with major allegations.
One of the three women, Heer Patel has alleged that there are dozens of such women victims, who have fallen into the trap of Rahul’s charms. His trick was very simple. First, he would befriend a potential victim, then he would offer them work in the industry, followed by his fake claims of love. Eventually, he would loot them and flee. And Pratyusha was no exception. She succumbed while others have lived on to tell their tales of horror and heartbreak.
Heer Patel, owner of a production house, claims that Rahul duped her of `25 lakh. She met Rahul in 2009. Heer wanted to establish herself as an actor and producer. Rahul, who was well known in the industry then, was her neighbour. Heer approached Rahul to help her get work in the industry.
“After a few months, Rahul told me that he is working on a movie and wanted me to invest `25 lakh. I trusted him and transferred the amount on December 20, 2010. Six months passed… When I asked him to return the money, he just said, ‘do whatever you want, I won’t give it back’,” Heer Patel said, showing the documents of agreement and bank statements of money transferred to Rahul’s account.
After the police interference, Rahul gave two post-dated cheques, which were to be withdrawn after six months and 12 months, respectively. Heer tried her all efforts to get her money back but all went in vain.
Kesha Khambhati, who met Rahul at a party, has a somewhat similar story. After meeting Rahul, she asked him to help her get work in the industry. Rahul soon started flirting with her and one day asked her for Rs2.5 lakh, saying it was urgent. She gave him the money, but later, when she asked for the money back, he started making excuses.
“Last year, I filed a complaint against him but nothing happened. Tired of chasing him for my money, I also filed a lawsuit against him at the Andheri court last month. I am waiting for the next hearing in May,” Kesha said.
