Shiamak Davar sued for sexually abusing former students

Noted Bollywood choreographer Shiamak Davar has been sued for sexually abusing his two former dance students, Percy Shroff (40) and Jimmy Mistry (33), residents of North Vancouver in Canada. The duo has lodged police complaint in Canada.

Both Shroff and Mistry have filed separate lawsuits against Shiamak in the British Columbia Supreme Court.

In their complaint, the two dancers said that they were sexually abused by Davar for several years. However, Davar has denied the allegation against him by the two former dancers. In a written response to the lawsuits filed against him, Davar said that he has done nothing wrong and the two are only trying to malign his "character, reputation and affiliated organisations”.

Narrating what happened over the years, Shroff and Percy said that both of them joined Shiamak Davar dance school in Canada when they were 16 and 17 years old. Davar used to lure them for sex. After shows and rehearsals, he used to call a small group of students in his home and would entertain them with movies. He used to take off his clothes and move around wearing underwear and asked boys to rub over him.

The two dancers also claimed that Davar is the leader of a sect called VRRP Spiritual Learning group. Davar, who run dance school in Mumbai and North Vancouver, says he is the "custodian" of VRRP, not its leader.

The choreographer said he "has never had inappropriate sexual relations".
