Denying the allegations, Madhavan has said that they are baseless and it’s a conspiracy. However, he has been accused of raping a Dalit woman after an allurement of marriage and a job.

As mentioned in the FIR filed by the victim, Madhavan called her to a house in Delhi’s Sundar Nagar for a work-related interview.

The woman, who was going through financial distress after Covid-19 agreed with the proposal and they started being in touch over video calls.

As per the FIR, one day Madhavan crossed his limits and asked the victim to meet him at the Uttam Nagar Metro Station Terminal. In a vehicle parked at the station, Madhavan forced himself on her and raped the woman. In another incident mentioned in the FIR, the victim was called by Madhavan for the second time in the same house where the woman allegedly went through the same, without her consent.

The victim filed a complaint against Madhavan after his allurements of marriage and employment turned into threats. In her FIR, the victim has requested the Police to grant her protection as she has been receiving death threats from PP Madhavan.
