MUMBAI -- A television actress today approached police alleging that four persons, whom she claimed to have posed as policemen, molested her at her residence in suburban Kandivali.

Actress Pratyusha Banerjee, who works in daily soaps, claimed in her complaint that the men barged into her flat in Laljipada and left the place only after she threatened to approach Kandivali police.

However, a police officer denied the allegation saying four policemen in plain clothes had gone to the actress' flat today to trace Rahul Singh who stays with her and against whom a non-cognisable (NC) offence has been registered.

The officer denied any misbehaviour with the actress by the personnel.

According to the officer, Rahul had allegedly manhandled a loan recovery agent, Amit Dalvi, when the latter had gone to collect instalment of car loan from him at her house on 31 December.

Some police personnel, along with Dalvi, went to the house on Sunday but couldn't find Rahul there.

They went to her house again on Monday, but were told by Pratyusha's mother that Rahul is in Goa following which they returned, the officer said, denying any misbehaviour with the actress.

However, no FIR has been registered yet, he added.
