Wanting to make it big in the glitzy entertainment industry, Sneha (name changed) moved to Mumbai from Madhya Pradesh in 2011. After struggling for some time in the megacity, she got some small-time modelling offers. She started working for an event management company as well.
In 2013, Sneha met TV actor Arman Tahil at a temple. The two kept meeting each other in parties and soon “fell in love.” For Sneha, Tahil meant the world but she had little inkling of his plans.
In her complaint filed with the police, Sneha has claimed that Tahil raped her repeatedly on the pretext of promising marriage. The model told the police that Tahil told her that he loves only her and wanted to marry her. “In March 2013, he raped me. He told me that he would talk to his parents about our relationship but nothing happened,” Sneha told the police.
Sneha descbribed Tahil as a “sweet” person. The model said that Tahil persuaded her to move to his house in 2015 but after some days, Tahil’s behaviour changed. He started demanding money from her claiming that his career was floundering. Sneha told the police she has given him lakhs till now.
Tahil started having fights with Sneha regularly. She claimed that he had relations with other women too. However, he kept on convincing her of marriage plans. “He raped me several times, and promised to marry me,” she told the cops.
