The man identified as Akil Malik has been arrested by the Mumbai Police and has been charged under Sections 323 (punishment for voluntarily causing hurt), 354 (assault or criminal force to woman with intent to outrage her modesty) and 506 (punishment for criminal intimidation) of the Indian Penal Code. Legal proceedings have begun and Gauhar will give her testimony against him.

It was truly a sad turn of events for the model turned actress Gauhar Khan who looked stunning in a floor length dress. She had also given a special dance performance for the closing night of India’s Raw Star drawing huge applause from the crowd.
After the incident, an utterly shocked Gauhar was in tears and inconsolable. It is also reported that one of the show’s contestant Jeffery Iqbal showed his displeasure by beating up the man.
But true to the professional that she is, Gauhar reported back on stage after taking a break for an hour to pull herself together and completed the remaining shoot.
We at Glamcheck condemn such audacious and shameful acts by so called self appointed moral police.
