The Background

The Mumbai police registered a case of rape and cheating against Binoy.

The case was filed on the basis of a complaint from a 33-year-old woman from Bihar, who has alleged that Binoy sexually assaulted her promising marriage and that she has an eight-year-old son from him.

Admitting that he knew the woman, Binoy, however, said the allegation was "baseless".

Six months ago, the woman had sent a letter to him demanding Rs five crore and alleging that he had married her and had a child from her, Binoy told television channels in Thiruvananthapuram.

Binoy said the Mumbai police had not got in touch with him so far and that he was prepared to face the case legally.

The woman also claimed that she came to know last year that the accused was already married, following which their relationship turned sour.

She also alleged that the accused threatened her with dire consequences.
