Mumbai-based model residing at Andheri West near Four Bungalows who was recently featured in Debonair magazine and has done hundreds of catalog and other print shoots has accused a Hyderabad-based casting agent of rape via a post on her Facebook status.
According to the victim, the casting agent convinced her to travel to Hyderabad on the pretext of signing her for a Telugu film. When she reached Hyderabad, he convinced her to share the same room with him and raped her, all the while trying to make it sound that it was the done thing and part and parcel of the “deal”. He then told her that she had been selected for the movie and she should go back to Mumbai and return only when the film goes on floor.
In her Facebook status update which she has requested everyone to share, the model also alleged that the concerned casting agent whom she named as Firoz Vadgama also conned her into having sexual relations with a so-called business tycoon (as she described the individual) from Hyderabad on the pretext of giving her contacts and connections in Bollywood in Mumbai. However, she later learnt from the business man that the casting agent had demanded a few lakh rupees from him in exchange for the model’s services.
As per Indian laws, a rape victim or survivor cannot be named by the media and her identity must be protected and hence IndiaNewz.in has refrained from disclosing her identity or publishing her photographs. We have also blurred her name
