A day earlier, a 30-year-old model had accused the owner of sexual harassment. The woman alleges that Bhushan Kumar has sexually abused her on the pretext of getting her work. Giving clarification in this matter, T-Series had said that the allegations leveled against Bhushan Kumar are baseless and have been made with the intention of extorting money by blackmailing. T-Series had provided some evidence in its favor. Based on these evidences, the police have registered an FIR against a local politician Mallikarjuna Pujari and the woman who made the allegation. It is being told that Mallikarjuna Pujari is a resident of Thane district. He made a plan with a female model to illegally extort money from Bhushan Kumar. This model has appeared in a guest appearance in a film. Pujari had approached Bhushan Kumar in June 2021 seeking illegal recovery and said that if he was not given the money, he would be implicated in the sexual abuse case. After this, T-Series also filed a written complaint with the Mumbai Police on 1 July 2021. Later Bhushan Kumar’s uncle Krishna Kumar met Mallikarjuna Pujari on 5 July 2021 where he once again threatened. However, Krishna Kumar refused to give money to Mallikarjuna. After this, on July 15, 2021, the model filed a case of rape against Bhushan Kumar.
