Rakhi Sawant on closing the case against Mika Singh; says: “I don’t want to die with the burden of clashes with people”
Rakhi Sawant has hit the headlines again, this time for her decision to pardon Mika Singh, against whom she had earlier filed a case. On June 15, the Bombay High Court quashed the First Information Report (FIR) and charge sheet filed by Rakhi in 2006 alleging molestation by singer Mika Singh.
In a recent interview, Rakhi said, “Mika has become my benefactor now. He calls me and talks to me very nicely. How long will we continue the fight? I don’t want to carry the burden of conflict with people throughout my life. I want to move forward.”
In a one-page affidavit, advocate Ayush Pasbola, representing Rakhi Sawant, said, “Based on my complaint dated June 11, 2006, the Oshiwara police station registered an FIR against the petitioners for offenses punishable under sections 354 (assault or criminal force). woman with intent to outrage her modesty) and 323 (voluntarily causing hurt) read with 34 (common intent) of the Indian Penal Code. Subsequently, the petitioners and I amicably resolved all our differences and realized that the entire dispute arose out of misunderstanding and misconception on our part.”
Rakhi’s decision to drop the legal battle really signifies her desire to move on in life and not carry the burden of past conflicts.
