Rani Mukerji‘s brother, small-time producer/director Raja Mukerji was granted bail by the Versova police on Monday, October 15, 2012. He was arrested on Sunday on charges of molesting TV actor Priya Mishra. The 39-year-old was left on a surety of Rs 10,000 after being charged under Section 354 of the Indian Penal Code that deals with sexual offence.
Raja was booked on Sunday night after the TV actor/screenwriter Mishra complained to the police that Raja had tried to molest her on Sunday evening. Reportedly, Raja had invited Priya to narrate a script to him in which she wanted Rani to play the main lead. Raja insisted that Priya and he travel in his car to the venue where she was to narrate the script to him, and allegedly molested her in the vehicle. Priya filed the complaint at the Versova police station later in the night after which Raja was arrested. Rani, who is known to be quite close to her brother, has not said anything about the incident until now. Meanwhile, Raja’s medical tests have been done, and now the director will have to deal with the matter in court.
