A pregnant journalist responds to Darshan Jariwala’s claim of being medically unfit to father a child. In December 2023, allegations surfaced from a journalist in Kolkata, accusing Darshan Jariwala of raping her and impregnating her under false pretenses of marriage. An FIR has been filed against the actor at a Kolkata police station, charging him under Sections 376 (rape), 377 (carnal intercourse), and 417 (cheating) of the Indian Penal Code. Following his resignation from CINTAA, Jariwala vehemently denied all allegations and threatened legal action by filing a defamation suit against the journalist. Jariwala’s lawyer dismissed the pregnancy accusation, asserting that his client is medically incapable of fatherhood. Sachar informed a Times Now’Telly Talk that Darshan has a medical condition preventing him from fathering children. She noted that his partner is struggling to conceive, despite their efforts, due to the same medical issue. In an interview with Beyond Bollywood, the victim dismissed it as a weak excuse. The journalist stated, ‘Being medically unfit to become a father doesn’t absolve someone of the capability to commit rape or engage in sexual intercourse.’ She continued to assert that Jariwala’s statements were false and reiterated that she had evidence supporting her allegation. According to her, she possessed Jariwala’s pelvic USG report from February 2023, along with his complete medical records.
