Mumbai: The Goregaon police arrested spot boy Mustafa Khan (23), who posed as a film financier and conned a junior artiste into having a physical relationship with him by promising her movie roles and money.
Khan, who was at large for since more than a month, was arrested on Sunday and booked for rape.
The victim (22), who lives in Vashi, has a two-year-old daughter. Her husband, a driver, is bedridden for the last six months after he was injured in an accident.
As the victim was looking for work, a fellow artiste, Kundan Singh, told her about an audition at Motilal Nagar in Goregaon (W) on December 10, 2012. The duo went there and met Khan. “He introduced himself as the film financier. When the victim told Khan about her domestic problems, and he promised to cast her in his film and lend her Rs 50,000,” said inspector G Rekulwad.
As they weren’t called in for the audition, Singh left, but Khan kept the victim engaged in a conversation and later forced her to get intimate with him.
The victim claimed Khan got intimate with her on five different occasions in Motilal Nagar. Thereafter, whenever she called Khan for work and the money, he made excuses. On realizing that she was used, the victim lodged a first information report against Khan on January 16, 2013.
“Khan had no fixed residence and his mobile number was registered on a bogus address. Khan was nabbed from Wadala on the basis of his mobile phone location,” Rekulwad said. The police found that the room in Motilal Nagar belongs to a tailor.
The police will make an application to the Borivli court, requesting Khan’s police custody. He is currently in judicial custody.
