Bhandarkar to face trial in rape case

 
The Andheri metropolitan magistrate, while rejecting the adverse report by the police, said it would conduct an inquiry into the case and record Jain’s statement on December 22. The court observed that Bhandarkar need not be arrested in the case.

The police had submitted the ‘B’ Summary report stating that Jain’s complaint is false and lacks evidence. In July 2004, Jain had lodged a complaint alleging that Bhandarkar had raped her several times between 1999 and 2004 under the pretext of marrying her and casting her as an actress in his movies.

“The court’s order rejecting the report is a stamp on the genuineness of my case,” Jain told reporters outside the court. “The magistrate will now look into the evidences of the case,” Jain’s lawyer said.
