However, a police officer denied the allegation saying four policemen in plain clothes had gone to the actress’ flat today to trace one Rahul Singh who stays with her and against whom a non-cognisable (NC) offence has been registered.

The officer denied any misbehaviour with the actress by the personnel.

According to the officer, Rahul had allegedly manhandled a loan recovery agent, Amit Dalvi, when the latter had gone to collect instalment of car loan from him at her house on December 31.

Some police personnel, along with Dalvi, went to the house yesterday but couldn’t find Rahul there.

They went to her house again today, but were told by Pratyusha’s mother that Rahul is in Goa following which they returned, the officer said, denying any misbehaved with the actress.

However, no FIR has been registered yet, he added.
