FIR filed against political leader Mallikarjun Pujari and a female model for extortion based on evidence provided by T-Series
T-Series Chairman Bhushan Kumar was in the news yesterday for the allegations that were filed against him by a female model. T-Series had immediately issued a statement that these allegations and the FIR are a conspiracy and is a result of failed attempt to extort money. The statement further said that the allegations are unsubstantiated with malicious intent to malign the reputation and image of the music company and its chairman.
Mallikarjun Pujari a local political leader of Thane district teamed up with a female model (who also did a cameo in a film) to extort money from Bhushan Kumar. Mallikarjun Pujari had approached Bhushan Kumar in June 2021 and demanded extortion money and threatened that if the money is not paid to him then one girl will file a false complaint against him for sexual harassment. T-Series then approached Mumbai police and filed a written complaint against Mallikarjun Pujari in Amboli police station on July 1, 2021.
Krishan Kumar spoke to Mallikarjun Pujari who asked the former to meet him in a hotel at 1:00 PM on July 5, 2021. Krishan met Mallikarjun who threatened him that one girl will file a police case against Bhushan Kumar and showed him some WhatsApp messages which were neither from the number of Bhushan Kumar nor from any other member of the T-Series team and demanded a whopping amount of money. Krishan Kumar did not agree to this extortion and told Pujari that T-Series and Bhushan Kumar will never bow down to such fraudulent extortion demands. He left the hotel but he recorded the conversation with Mallikarjun.
Mallikarjun kept calling Krishan Kumar but he didn’t give in to his demands for extortion. Pujari then conspired with the girl and filed a complaint of rape charges against Bhushan Kumar in the DN Nagar police station, Andheri on July 15.
