Cadila Pharmaceuticals’ CMD Rajiv Modi Appears in Police Station In Alleged Sextortion Case

| Updated: February 15, 2024 14:33

Over one-and-half months after a First Information Report (FIR) was filed against Rajiv Modi, Chairman and Managing Director of Cadila Pharmaceuticals, and employee Jhonson Mathew in a sexual assault complaint, Modi appeared before investigators in Ahmedabad on Thursday for interrogation.

Lavina Sinha, Ahmedabad City Deputy Commissioner of Police (Zone-1), confirmed the development, stating, “Modi has not surrendered yet, he has come to the Sola police station to give a statement.”

Modi and Mathew face charges of rape, criminal force to outrage a woman’s modesty, and criminal intimidation under the provisions of the Indian Penal Code.

Chirag Koradia, Joint Commissioner of Police, Sector-1, said, “Inspector R H Solanki has been questioning Rajiv Modi since 8 am in Sola police station. He appeared after the police summoned him for interrogation. We’re interrogating based on the evidence and allegations, further investigation is underway.”

An FIR was registered on December 31, 2023, after the Gujarat High Court set aside a magisterial court’s order which had rejected the Bulgarian woman’s complaint alleging rape and sexual harassment by Modi. The High Court also directed that a senior IPS officer nominated by the state DIG (law and order) should investigate the complaint and that the probe be completed within two months.

The complainant, who was employed as a flight attendant and a personal assistant for CMD Modi in August 2022, has alleged several instances of sexual harassment between February and March 2023. She also claimed that she was fired in April after she refused to surrender to CMD Modi’s “illicit demands”.

In July 2023, the woman moved the magistrate court, alleging rape, criminal assault, and criminal intimidation, among others, by the CMD and Jhonson Matthew. As the case unfolds, it continues to draw national attention to the high-profile executive and his pharmaceutical company.
