Actor Parth Samthaan Denies Molestation Charges, Issues Statement

According to Parth, Vikas Gupta who he had accused of molestation in 2013 has been plotting against him.

TV actor Parth Samthaan, who rose to fame with popular TV show Kaisi Yeh Yaariyan, has been accused of molestation by a 20-year-old model.

The model filed an FIR against the TV star last month, accusing him of asking sexual favours from her. Parth was recently called to the police station to record his statement. Parth has denied all the claims made by the girl in a statement issued by him.

Parth Samthaan, ActorTo start with, the case is completely false and baseless...went to the police station today, gave my statement...and I am out of it…and yes it was a dispute among friends... and she complained after almost 1.5 years…at the station, we also got to know from the cops that the girl had come with Vikas Gupta to the station, and hence plotted all those false accusations without any proof, and filed the case...the very next day, she called me and said she realized what she had done and wanted to take the case back... but since she had filed an FIR, cops could not take the case back…today, I gave all my call recordings and WhatsApp conversations to the cops which I had with her, where it is clearly mentioned that she wants to take the case back and did all this in the heat of the moment...and then requesting me to sort it out as soon as possible…time and again, Vikas Gupta has been trying to demean me, and everyone is aware of that...don’t need to say more as I know the audience is sensible enough of what’s happening as they have already witnessed me getting into stupid controversies before….also given the fact that women are given special rights by law over men in such situations... which I completely respect .. but that does not mean they should take undue advantage of it and stoop so low in order to demean me or anyone…thank you.

If you are wondering what he is talking about and who is Vikas Gupta, well this is not the first time that Parth has been enrolled in a controversy. Back in 2013, Parth had accused former friend and TV producer Vikas Gupta of molestation after which many said that were in a relationship.

Meanwhile the model also issued a statement accusing the actor of sexual misconduct multiple times.

There was no dispute between me and Parth Samthaan on any financial matter. As a matter of fact, I have known him for more than 4 years. Parth has, on many occasions, tried to propose me – not for a relationship, but to have a good time – which I have very politely turned down. It might be cool in his group for women to sleep around with him and I have no issues with other girls and the choices they make, but I have a different value system. After returning from a party in an alcoholic state, Parth misbehaved with me. I stopped contact with him for some time and he really apologised and as we have been friends for years, I decided to forgive him for the behaviour. But soon after that, I started getting insulting and shameful calls from boys who would want favours from me. Someone was sharing my number with people. Parth actually tried to show that he is helping me but in reality, he was the one doing it out of vengeance. His WhatsApp controversy, where they made a group called whores and more whores, he shared details about women and his voice notes are available. The voice notes clearly mention me and him stating that I have a bad character and I am easy. Last week of January, the last time I met him, he misbehaved with me again and I informed my mother, who then gave me the strength to file the FIR. Yes there was a lot of pressure from my family for this case might go public with him being an actor, and we were discussing to take the case back with him giving a written apology, but I realised that it’s not just me but the other women in the group targeted, who were as young as 16-years-old. These actors target young girls and then share their details so that they can be exploited. Just because I didn’t give in, I was targeted and my reputation was put at stake. I am not taking any case back and I will fight it till the end. They have leaked my pictures online and revealed my name. I will not be slut shamed into taking the FIR back. I come from an educated family and I know when someone is right. No matter what difficulties come, I stand by the truth, I will get justice.
