The Pondy Bazaar police have registered a case against film-maker S.P.B. Charan based on a complaint filed against him by Sona who has alleged that he tried to rape her a few days back at a party thrown by director Venkat Prabhu to celebrate the super-success of his latest directorial venture Mankatha.
The case has been registered under the clause ‘atrocity against women’. It is rumoured that after the preliminary round of investigations, Charan would be taken into custody by the Police. After filing the complaint with the police, Sona promptly convened a press conference and cried in front of the scribes as she narrated the sequence of events which reportedly took part after the cocktail party.
Sona has stated in her complaint that Charan came hard at her and disrobed her in front of the many onlookers who were at the party. Charan, son of the legendary playback singer S.P. Balasurbamaniam, had denied the allegations. Police sources say that cases have been filed under as many as 4 sections against Charan.
A police official said that now that a case has been registered, law would take its own course by conducting a preliminary investigation. Meanwhile, Charan didn’t turn up at the police commissioner’s office as expected to present his side of the case.
