New Delhi: Actress Shweta Basu Prasad, who was sent to a remand home after her involvement in a sex racket was exposed, has been given a clean chit by the Hyderabad Court.
The ‘Makdee’ actress who was only recently let out of the remand home, and recently got out of the remand home can breathe a sigh of relief as Hyderabad sessions court has given a clean chit to her. The Hyderabad sessions court on Friday cleared Prasad of all charges against her.
Speaking to a leading daily, the actress confirmed, “Yes, I’ve been given a clean chit from a sessions court in Hyderabad. I can’t begin to tell you what a relief it is for me and for my family. My parents are smiling for the first time in months.”
Shweta also said that this news has come as a huge relief for her and her family. She also said to the daily that this episode was futile and the courts acquittal comes as a closure to an incident that she intended to put behind her.
“This was just the vindication I was waiting for. Although I had already put the incident behind me there was still a closure that I needed to put on the issue. All my earlier charges from the trial court have been withdrawn. I can’t describe the relief I feel. It’s like my name has been cleared after months of doubt and suspicion. I now see how futile and unnecessary the whole episode was. I am glad to be alive and kicking and raring to go. Life looks beautiful and hopeful. My only regret is I was put on trial by a section of the media. I should’ve been given the right to defend myself. Never mind. Now that my name has been cleared, I hold no grudges against anyone”, she added.
The 23 year old actress was caught in a compromising position, when the police raided a plush hotel at Banjara Hills in August of 2014. The actress was held in company of a pimp, along with some high profile businessmen from Mumbai.
