A Mumbai businessman has been arrested on charges of raping and cheating veteran actor Zeenat Aman of more than Rs 15 crore, police said.
The accused, Sarfaraz alias Aman Khanna, was arrested on Thursday night on the basis of a complaint filed by the actor, the police added. “The complaint was filed at Juhu police station. The accused has been arrested and produced in local court. The matter has been handed over to the Crime Branch. The investigation is on,” DCP, Crime, Nisar Tamboli told PTI.
In January, the actor had filed a separate stalking case against Khanna, 38. He was arrested the following month and released on bail.

The alleged incidents took place between 2010 and 2015, he said, adding that the case was transferred to Crime Branch Unit IX for further investigation. Khanna has been booked under various sections of the IPC, including for rape and cheating, he added.
