Pune: In another case of casting couch, two models in Pune have claimed that a group of men burnt them with cigarette butts and sought sexual favours from them in return for roles in a film project.
The women filed the complaint claiming that they were burned with cigarettes when they denied giving in to their sexual demands.
“They burnt me. I was naked the moment the bell rang and they ran away from there. That girl saved me. I don’t know if any cops came there,” said one of the women.
She demanded the strictest of punishment for those persons involved in the crime act.
The other recounted that even policemen used to come there and that she recognised them.
“They must be arrested. They are the ones who bribe the cops,” said the other women.
The police have filed an FIR in the matter and have begun the investigation.
Out of the four accused, the police have managed to nab two people and are interrogating them trying to find out whether the episode was a stand-alone incident or did they have similar victims in the past.
Although there haven’t been any other testimonies of possible victims which have come to light, the police will certainly ascertain from the two people they have detained.
Police are also investigating the arrested persons if they were involved in other crimes, and checking their past records.
As of now, the whereabouts of the two absconding men is not known.
