Bollywood actor Arjun Rampal’s brother-in-law Amit Gill has been booked by the Mumbai police for allegedly molesting an air hostess. He had also threatened her that he would put up her nude pictures online. Gill is married to the Daddy actor’s sister Komal. According to reports, Gill works as an investor and the air hostess is his client. He called the woman to his house in Anand Villa for a meeting and allegedly spiked her drink before taking her obscene photos.
The air hostess is said to have given Rs 18 lakh to Gill for investment on her behalf while being promised good returns. However, Gill neither returned the principal amount or the interest that amounted to Rs 6 lakh, reports Mumbai Mirror. The air hostess decided to reach out to the Mumbai police to file a complaint after which the whole incident came to the fore. She alleged that apart from not giving her her money back, he also molested her. “A common friend told me she had invested around Rs 80 lakh with Gill, and he was offering good returns,” said the victim as quote by the tabloid.
It was then that the air hostess took the decision to give a sum of Rs 18 lakh to Gill. “There was an agreement between Gill and the victim’s mother about the same. Gill had promised returns at 3 per cent per month to the victim, who thought that with this interest money, she would be able to take care of her mother who was all alone in Mumbai, as the victim mostly stayed in Abu Dhabi for work,” the tabloid quoted an official of the Santacruz police station as saying.

When the victim asked Gill for her money and the interest, he gave her a check that bounced. When approached, he then offered to transfer the money directly to her account. But the victim only received Rs 12 lakh, as opposed to Rs 18 lakh and the interest.
“This was on June 15, 2017. I started demanding the remaining Rs 6 lakh with interest from Gill, and he started threatening me and even sent me some obscene pictures of me, telling me not to ask for money, or he would post my obscene photos on social media,” the victim said, revealing that the pictures were taken in August 2016 when Gill had called her home and revealed that he was no more in touch with her friend (who had initially introduced Gill and the victim). But the air hostess was only interested in her money and that’s when he offered her a drink that was spiked and allegedly headed to take obscene images of her and also touched her private parts.
The police is now investigating the matter against Gill and he has been booked under Sections 328 (causing hurt by means of poison, etc), 354 (sexual harassment and punishment for sexual harassment), and 506 (criminal intimidation) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).
