Bollywood item girl arrested

Our Correspondent in Mumbai | February 27, 2008 14:12 IST

An actor, who featured in Bollywood item numbers in the 1990s, has been arrested by the Thane police in a case of alleged abetment of rape and the kidnapping of a 12-year-old girl.

The arrest came after the victim's mother filed a complaint against the 'item girl' at the Mira Road police station. The victim worked as a maid at the actor's home. Mira Road is a township close to Mumbai.

In the complaint to the police, the girl's mother alleged that the actor forcibly kidnapped her daughter with the help of her (the item girl's) brother, who then allegedly raped her. The mother also claimed that after the rape, her daughter was forcibly sent to Pune to have sex with some clients.

The actor and her brother have been arrested and will be produced in the Thane court later on Wednesday.
