Bigg Boss contestant alleges rape attempt on her; her brother clarifies

Saturday, February 15, 2020 • Tamil Comments

Bigg Boss, which is one of the most popular TV reality shows in India, has been hosted by Bollywood actor Salman Khan for nearly a decade. The 13th season of the series premiered on 29 September, 2019.

One of the finalists, Arti Singh, opened up a couple of weeks ago about being sexually harassed as a teenager. She broke down during a task and revealed that a man had locked her inside a house and had attempted to rape her when she was 13. Arti's sister-in-law had earlier stated, "I am totally blindsided. Krushna and I have no idea about this. Only after I speak to Arti, I will be clear on this. I am deeply hurt and concerned and wish she had spoken to us about it. Of course, I want to kill the person who tried to molest her. I am devastated. I am someone who stands up for victims and I did not know I had a victim in my family."

With the finale of the show happening tonight, Arti's brother Krushna reportedly stated in an interview with an entertainment portal, "It was shocking for us too. I have said this before too, but I think Arti in the flow must have said too much. There was no rape attempt on her, it was going to happen but the guy ran away. Aunty told me, an FIR was also registered against him in Lucknow. He fled and we couldn’t trace him."
