Actress accuses cosmetic surgeon of rape

A TV actress, who wished to remain anonymous, has accused a celebrity cosmetic surgeon of sexually assaulting her at his clinic in the suburbs of Mumbai on August 9.

The celebrity cosmetic surgeon, identified as Viral Desai, has refuted the charges. He was booked under section 376 (punishment for rape) of the IPC but has been granted anticipatory bail. The surgeon has alleged that he has been in a consensual relationship with the actress for years. He has also submitted evidence for the same in the court, including photographs and WhatsApp chats.

Viral Desai's counsel Parvez Memon has stated that he is happy with the anticipatory bail order passed by the court. "The so-called victim has resorted to the abuse of process of law with ulterior motives which was exposed by us in the court through cogent evidence suggesting a consensual relationship," he reportedly mentioned.
