Bollywood superstar Shahrukh Khan’s driver has been arrested for allegedly raping a 17-year-old maid servant after promising to get her a job at the actor’s residence, police said on Thursday.

According to police, Rajendra Gautam (34) learnt through common friends that the girl, working at the house of an actress and an ex-wife of a cricketer-turned-politician, was looking for another job as she was not happy with her salary. He telephoned her, but the celebrity herself accidentally picked up the call. She subsequently sacked the girl.

Police said Gautam assured her work at Mr. Khan’s bungalow and, on the pretext of finding her an accommodation, took her to a lodge in Nalasopara and sexually abused her. — PTI
