Shahrukh Khan’s driver held for raping Sangeet Bijlani's maid

Shahrukh Khan’s driver named Rajendrakumar Gautam alias Pintu Mishra (34), a resident of Asalpha in Andheri (East) was arrested for raping a 17-year-old maid of Bollywood actress Sangeeta Bijlani. The victim is a resident of Latur and came to Mumbai for job five months ago. She was employed as a maid in Sangeeta's house. SRK’s driver raped her in pretext of landing her a high salary job. He took her to a hotel in Nallasopara and raped her.

Gautam met her somewhere and managed to get her phone number and won her confidence and lured to give her a suitable job. They started speaking on phone and he won the confidence of the girl and he Gautam even took the girl to Shahrukh’s home once.

He also convinced the girl to quit her job and the girl has done so on June 20. The girl came to meet Gautam and he promised to take her to home. He did not take the girl to his home and instead raped her. Nowhere to go, the girl gathered courage and lodged complaint at Bandra police station.

“The girl was inconsolable and traumatised. She has no one here in Mumbai and is the only earning member of her family. She has now decided to move back to her home in Latur with her mother,” said an officer from the Bandra police station.

Gautam was arrested in the afternoon and has been charged under Section 376 (Rape) of the IPC. He will be produced in the Sessions Court today.

A source close to Shah Rukh Khan said, “The driver arrested has nothing to do with SRK or his family. He has driven the car for the kids on a few occasions. Otherwise, he drives one of the vehicles that are part of Khan's convoy.”
