MUMBAI: ABCD 2 actor Nilesh Nirbhavane has been arrested for raping a 14-year-old mentally challenged girl.

A professional dancer, 20-year-old Nilesh was arrested by the Pant Nagar Police Station last week after he confessed to his crime. 

According to the reports, Nilesh had been raping the minor for almost a month along with a friend after the two took her to public toilets or other isolated places and then rape her.

The incident came to light after the teacher of the victim noticed that she had been behaving abnormally for a while now and on being questioned, the teacher realized that she was being sexually abused by three boys for over a month.

After the teacher informed about the matter to the teenager’s parents, they then filed a complaint with the police. 

As informed by a police official, two broken front teeth of Nilesh worked as a big clue in the basis of which they dragged him for investigation.

As the probe proceeded, Nilesh confessed of the crime and was booked under Indian Penal Code 376 D (gang-rape), 377 (unnatural offences) and 34 (acts done by several persons in furtherance of common intention).

Nilesh was seen as one of the back-up dancers who acted in the recently released movie ABCD 2 starring Varun Dhawan and Shraddha Kapoor. (Also Read: 12 reasons why you should watch ABCD 2)
