By Mudit Aggarwal: The father of the main accused in the Ankita Bhandari murder case has been accused of sexual harassment by his driver. Vinod Arya, father of Pulkit Arya, the main accused in the Uttarakhand resort receptionist murder case, allegedly forced his driver to do a sexually explicit act.
The former minister’s driver, Rohan Kambhoj (25), accused that Vinod Arya called him to his house late at night and asked him to strip off. However, after the driver protested, Pulkit’s father smirked at him, saying he just wanted to check if he had different sexual preferences.
Meanwhile, speaking to Aaj Tak, the former minister refuted the accusations by the driver, saying that Rohan, after being released from jail, went into hiding with cash and a sim. Further clarifying, Pulkit’s father said he had even logged a complaint at the police station.
