Shweta Basu Prasad the Bollywood actress who made headlines for allegedly being involvement in a prostitution racket has been given a clean chit by the Metropolitan Sessions Court, Nampally, Hyderabad and the case has been withdrawn.
The actress who was arrested red handed at a posh hotel in a police sting operation in September was pronounced not guilty by the court and the police was asked to shut the prostitution case filed against her.
Welcoming the decision and expressing relief at being acquitted from the notorious charge, Shewta targeted the media and said that she was emotionally hurt that the media whom she respects from her bottom of heart has left her disappointed.
In an open letter to the media she lambasted the media for blindly picking up false statements and publishing misleading stories without verifying its authenticity thus tarnishing her image in the film industry and in the society.
Taking the media by its horns she quizzed, “After my detainment, I went straight to the rescue home where I stayed for 59 and a half days. (60th day, I came home), then where and how did I give a statement to media?”
Proving her innocence in the letter, she mentions that she had gone to the hotel-Park Hyatt in Banjara Hills to attend a private function when she was unfortunately arrested.
She writes, “I was at hotel Park Hyatt in Hyderabad for Santhosham Awards, which was conducted on 30th August. I was never encouraged to get into commercial sex and no agent booked my tickets and stay there! My tickets and accommodation was done by the award event organizers. The hotel where I stayed with other guests of the award ceremony was a hospitality partner with the event. I still have the itinerary in my email inbox.”
Concluding her letter she writes, “Anyway, enough said, enough heard. I overlook, because this episode does not deserve any more attention!
