Shehnaaz Gill’s father accused of rape at gunpoint
Shehnaaz Gill’s father Santokh Singh Sukh (also known as Sukh Pradhan) has been accused of rape by a 40-year-old woman, who claimed that he forced himself on her in his car at gunpoint. The victim has filed a complaint with the Punjab Police.
The woman in question revealed that she had gone to Santok Singh’s house to meet Randhir Singh Sidhu, with whom she has a good bond since the past 12 years.
However, a day before the incident, the two had gotten into a fight. She then came to know that Randhir is staying at Santok Singh’s hose in Ajit Nagar.
On 14 May at around 5.30 pm, she drove to his place in her car along with her friend Seema. She said that Shehnaaz’s father was waiting for her outside the house. In a bid to make her meet Randhir, he asked her to take a seat in his car.
The victim has accused Santok Singh of raping her near Rohi Bridge in his car at gunpoint. Later, he threatened to kill her if she told about the incident to anyone and drove her near his house, where her friend Seema was waiting for them to return.
However, Shehnaaz Gill’s brother Shehbaz Badesha has claimed that the rape allegations are ‘completely false’ and an attempt to defame their father.
“Yes, there has been a case registered with the Punjab Police but these are completely false allegations. The lady in question is trying to defame my father.
We are surely disturbed at the moment but we also know nothing is going to happen as we have enough proof that the lady is lying.
The mentioned place where the incident according to her happened is under CCTV surveillance and we have arranged for recording of it,”Shehbaz Badesha
he told SpotboyE in an interview.
When asked about her motives, Shehbaz said that he does not know the complainant.
“I really don’t know her as Shehnaaz and I have shifted to Mumbai from quite sometime now. But all we know is my father is not wrong and justice will be served to him soon,”Shehbaz Badesha
Currently, Shehnaaz Gill and Shehbaz are quarantined in Mumbai. When asked if they were planning to travel to Punjab to be with their family at this time, he said,
“For now, we are very much in Mumbai and don’t have any such plans. I have been busy with calls since morning and I would like the media to cooperate with us.”Shehbaz Badesha
Investigating officer, Inspector Harpreet Kaur told that a complaint has been filed and Santokh was absconding when they went to his house to investigate.
