Eminent Tollywood actress Sayantika Banerjee was attacked by her ex-boyfriend Joy Mukherjee in Kolkata on Friday. Today, Joy was arrested by Kolkata police and he has been produced in Alipore court. He has got bail from court after furnishing a personal bond of Rs 500.
According to Zee 24 Ghanta, Joy stopped Sayantika's car near Southern Avenue crossing and started abusing her. At that time Sayantika's brother Amit was present in the car. When he tried to intervene, Joy allegedly manhandled him. Sayantika has alleged that Joy even broke the handle of her car.
However, Sayantika was unhurt. Later, Sayantika's father lodged a complaint in Tollygunge Police Station based on which Joy Mukhopadhyay was arrested. Police are looking into whether he was drunk at the time of confrontation. Joy's family, however, is saying the bone of contention between the two is Rs 25 lakh. According to Joy's family, Sayantika hasn't paid Rs 25 lakh rupees.
Joy's brother has told Zee 24 Ghanta, that they had bought a flat in South Kolkata for which both were supposed to pay Rs 30 lakh each. However, Sayantika only paid Rs 5 lakh. This lead to the altercation between the two actors, claims Joy's brother.
