A 28-year-old Mumbai-based model, Apernah, who had accused 9 Bollywood celebrities of raping and molesting her is now receiving death threats. Model Apernah has questioned the Mumbai Police’s inaction in this case and shared a post on her Instagram account.
Going by the media reports, Apernah had lodged a complaint at the Bandra Police station and an FIR was registered on May 26 in which names of photographer Colston Julian, actor Jackky Bhagnani, Krishan Kumar (T-series), Nikhil Kamat, Sheel Gupta, Ajit Thakur, Gurjot Singh, Vishnu Induri and Anirban Blah (Kwan Entertainment) have been written.
According to the model, the aforementioned people had tried to rape and molest her on the pretext of bringing her name and fame. She has accused the men of ‘gang-stalking her using fake Instagram accounts.
Accusing the police of inaction, she said
that her perpetrators should be held responsible if anything unnatural was to
happen to her before the case was concluded.
Taking it to Instagram, she posted, “BTW the so-called “high profile men” are still sending me death threats indirectly using violent pictures and videos on Instagram (via dm and tags). I’ve blocked hundreds of these fake accounts and have reported some as they had rather explicit pics and wordings as well as triggering usernames like @bitchurdead887 @terimaak231 or something @bulletzngunzz or something like that.. my hand is shaking as type this.. I’ve informed the police about some of this but they’ve asked to go to the nearest police station and register another FIR.. but I don’t have that kind of patience and energy m as remember how it took me 3 weeks of running around them to get them to register the first one.”
“Therefore I just wanted to let everyone know that IF ANYTHING UNNATURAL HAPPENS TOO ME BEFORE THE FINAL JUDGMENT COMES OUT AND EVEN AFTER THAT.. the MOB/ men I’ve named, i.e. GURPREET SINGH, SHEEL GUPTA, NIKHIL KAMATH, GURJOT SINGH, AJIT THAKUR, KRISHAN KUMAR, VISHNU INDURI, THE MORANIS (because of their strong affiliation with most of them), COLSTON JULIAN, SUHEL SETH, JACKKY BHAGNANI, ANIRBAN BLAH WILL BE COMPLETELY RESPONSIBLE FOR THE SAME AS I HAVE NO OTHER “ENEMIES” in the world.. who’d like to harm me as bad as these people whom I’ve shown way too much kindness than they ever deserved out of pity (and maybe fear that I don’t have anymore),” it further read.
Apernah also captioned her post as, “*me /my family/my pets. They have gang stalked me, slandered my name, abused me, attacked my mind and body, put me out of jobs and positions while portraying themselves as my well-wishing friends.. took me years of living in doubt and questioning my instincts but I’m sane now, and I see things very clearly the veil of illusion that they put on me has been lifted and set on fire.. would further like to make it very clear that I am not friends neither in touch with any of these people. And I’m fully aware of how they are trying to buy the police and the court.
