Rahul Jain found himself in legal difficulty, allegedly raping a costume stylist

Rahul Jain debuted in the music industry in 2014, when he appeared on the MTV show MTV Aloft Star. He made his Bollywood debut with the song Teri Yaad in the 2016 Hindi suspense thriller film Fever, starring Gauahar Khan and Rajeev Khandelwal. Rahul has written around 250 musical compositions. The musician, however, found himself in legal difficulty when an FIR was filed against him for allegedly raping a 30-year-old lady costume stylist who works as a freelance costume stylist.

Rahul raped her at his residence in Mumbai’s Andheri, according to the FIR. According to the accuser, Rahul contacted her on Instagram and commended her work before inviting her to his apartment in a high-rise building in the suburban Andheri neighbourhood. According to the police officer, Rahul also informed the complainant that she would be employed as his personal wardrobe stylist. On August 11, the costume designer paid a visit to the singer’s residence and requested her to take her to his bedroom under the guise of displaying his possessions and raping her.

She further claimed that Rahul Jain beat her and attempted to destroy evidence when she resisted him. According to an Oshiwara police spokesman, the inquiry is now continuing. An FIR has been filed against Rahul under sections 376 (the penalty for rape), 323 (punishment for willfully inflicting harm), and 506 (punishment for criminal intimidation) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).

Rahul responded to the rape charges made by the costume designer by saying, “I don’t know this woman. The allegations raised by her are fake and baseless. Earlier also a woman had made similar allegations against me but I got justice. The woman may be an associate of that woman,” reports.

This is not, however, the first time Rahul has been charged with sexual assault. In 2021, a female poet accused him of rape, forceful abortions, child abandonment, and dishonesty.
