TV actress Pratyusha Banerjee files FIR against policemen, alleges misbehaviour

Mumbai: Television actress Pratyusha Banerjee of "Balika Vadhu" fame has filed an FIR against eight men, including three policemen, alleging they barged into her residence in Mumbai.

The incident reportedly happened on Monday evening.

Pratyusha told IANS that the eight entered her Kandivali residence and asked for her friend, actor Rahul Raj Singh. When she told them he was not at home, they misbehaved with her.

"I'm extremely upset with whatever happened on Monday Evening. If this is how policemen are going to behave, then what to do? I have filed an FIR against eight men, of whom three are policemen," Pratyusha said.

"They entered my house, pushed my door, they were misbehaving with me and were so rude. It took me three hours to convince the police to file the FIR since police themselves were also involved. "I am going to meet the (area) DCP," she added when IANS contacted her on Tuesday.

Apparently, it's all got to do with a car loan that Rahul Raj Singh had taken from a bank and had been irregular in his repayments.

Pratyusha said: "On the night of 31 December, the bank had sent a recovery agent to my place for a Rs.5,000 EMI for the month of December without even informing us. The man had come drunk and was not ready to leave even after we gave the money. So, Rahul took matters in hand and sent him out of the house.

"On Monday night, they again came to my house. I told them Rahul does not live here and that's when all this happened," she added.
