The FIR was registered at the Premnagar police station in Jhansi on Friday, police sources here said. Rakhi and four others have been charged with provoking to commit suicide besides other sections of the IPC. A youth Luxman had allegedly went into depression and later died after he was humiliated by Rakhi in her reality show last month.

Luxman, who hailed from Raigarh area in Jhansi about 300 km from here, had participated in one of the episodes of “Rakhi Ka Insaaf” last month during which the actress had reportedly called him a “namard” (impotent).

Luxman had some differences with his wife Anita following which the latter had left him to live with her parents a few months ago. “Anita had alleged that a member of Luxman’s family had tried to rape her,” the family members said. The organisers of the show invited Luxman and his wife to take part in the show to resolve their differences. Instead he was called an impotent much to his shock.

Luxman went into depression after the show was aired on a TV channel and was watched by his friends and neighbours. He died on Wednesday. His family members alleged that Luxman’s death was in fact a suicide after being humiliated by the item girl.
