esterday, a district court in Rohini ordered for the registration of an FIR  against Mithun Chakraborty’s son Mahaakshay Chakraborty (popularly known as Mimoh) and his wife Yogeeta Bali. The decision came after a Bhojpuri actress filed a chargesheet accusing Mimoh of rape, cheating, and miscarriage without consent. According to her complaint, the actress had been in a relationship with him since 2015 and had been raped by Mimoh after he called her over and spiked her drink. She further claimed that he was raping her for four years on the pretext of marriage and had even given her abortion pills after she got pregnant.

Twenty four hours since, there has been a studied silence from the Chakrabortys. Neither Mimoh (who is getting married this weekend) nor his mother, who has been accused of threatening the complainant, have responded to the allegations or even acknowledged it.
