The mother of a 15-year-old girl from a well-to-do family held her prisoner for the past six months in their Andheri home and drugged her continually to physically torture her — a task joined in by the mother’s live-in boyfriend, all to keep her from seeing her father.
During this time, she wouldn’t feed her for days or let her go to school. In fact, in a bid to sever all her links to the outside world, she cancelled her school admission and hacked her online profiles to smirch her image before her friends, so she would have nobody to go to if she wanted to speak out.
The hair-raising incident came to light after the girl managed to run away to her father and reveal her ordeal, following which an FIR was lodged at Amboli police station.
According to the police, the teenager, Misha, is the daughter of smalltime film actor Abhishek Mishra and his wife Shalini Kelkar (all the names have been changed to protect privacy).
“Abhishek, who has acted in a handful of popular films, has been living apart from his wife for the last seven years. He is Shalini’s third husband and currently she remains married to him,” a police official said.
