SRK's driver arrested for raping minor maid servant

Bollywood superstar Shahrukh Khan’s driver has been arrested on Wednesday for allegedly raping a minor in a lodge at Nalasopara in Thane district.

According to Bandra police, the accused Rajendra Gautam, 34, who has been working with the Khan family for seven years, allegedly raped the 17-year old maid servant on the pretext of getting her a job at the actor’s residence.

Assistant Police Commissioner Shivaji Rao Kolekar said the girl hailing from Latur district used to work for a celebrity— an ex-wife of a cricketer-turned-politician.

Kolekar said the girl was searching for an another job as she was not happy with the salary she was fetching there.

Through mutual friends Gautam learnt that the girl was looking for a job and hence he telephoned  the celebrity’s residence.

Kolekar said the girl was  told by Gautam that Shahrukh Khan was not in Mumbai and once the actor is back he would help her getting a job in the bungalow.

On the pretext of finding her an accommodation, he took her to a lodge in Nalasopara on Friday and sexually abused her.

He threatened her with dire consequences if she revealed it to anybody, the officer said.

However, she mustered courage and informed the matter to her friend, who helped her in approaching the Bandra police on Wednesday.
