For the unversed, Meera is the cousin of Bollywood actresses Priyanka Chopra and Parineeti Chopra. The actress took to her social media and shared the ordeal of what exactly happened to her and how she was reportedly cheated by her interior designer.
Meera filed an FIR against interior designer Rajinder Dewan, who was working on her new house in Andheri, Mumbai. She accused him of attacking her and even pushing her out of her own house. Taking to her Twitter handle, the actress pointed out the issues with respect to women’s safety.
Reportedly, the case has been filed under sections 354 (outraging a woman’s modesty), 504 (intentional insult with intent to provoke breach of peace), 506 (2) (criminal intimidation) and 509 (insulting modesty of a woman).
The actress is said to have signed an agreement for a total payment of ₹17 lakh and was asked to pay fifty percent in advance. Despite not knowing the designer, she decided to trust him and paid the amount asked for, and she had to go to Benaras for a shoot.
Upon returning from her shoot, she realised that the designer had been using substandard material despite being specifically told about the material to be used. When asked to change, he got abusive and even pushed her out of the house.
It is said that the actress was refused any payment when she later messaged the designer and asked for the bills of his expenditure. It was only after he disappeared that Meera went to the police station and filed an FIR, but she added that it has been two months and no action has been taken yet.
#womansafety should be the utmost priority where you live, but then why does law makers shy away frm taking action?
