Piyush Sahdev arrested on rape charges, sister Meher Vij reacts


‘Behyadh’ actor Piyush Sahdev was arrested for allegedly raping his former ex-girlfriend. He was booked under section IPC 376. Versova police lifted from his residence.

Piyush was under police custody and was not unavailable for making any comment while his sister, Meher Vij, who essayed the role of Insia (Zaira Wasim) in ‘Secret Superstar’, was unaware of the news until she was informed by a leading news agency.

“I got to know this from you. When did this happen? I don’t know anything at all,” stated the actress as quoted by The Times of India. “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,” the actress told the leading daily.

Apart from the actor’s sister, Piyush’s brother Gireesh Sahdev, best known for his role in ‘Best Of Luck Nikki’, says that he has complete faith in the judicial system of India and hopes that verdict comes in favour of Piyush. “I don’t think my brother can be involved in these kind of activities. He is not like that. But if there’s a .1 per cent of him being in the wrong, we will accept it, but I still believe aisa kuch nahi hai. He is innocent, the verdict will be in his favour, sach ki vijay hogi,” he says.

When asked if he was in touch with his brother, he confesses that for the last four-five years, they were not in touc. “After his marriage four-five years ago, kuch aisi situation hui ki he wasn’t comfortable talking to us. Whatever his reasons were, baat nahi hui. Even I felt I should not get into his zone if he is comfortable like that. He was living his life. I did not want to enter his personal space. However, since the last three-four months he was facing some problems and automatically we got in touch with each other.

But still, this has come as a big shock to me. Now, we can’t speak to each other because he is in custody and all his belongings are in the locker. They are not allowing anybody to talk to him. I am also waiting now and will go with whatever verdict is given,” says Gireesh.

When asked if he knew the girl who charged Piyush of raping her, he says, “There’s no point talking about her. I am only concerned about my brother.”
