Playback singer Ankit Tiwari who was recently arrested on charges of raping his girlfriend, has been granted bail by a sessions court in Mumbai.
The 'Sun raha hai na tu' singer has been granted bail in exchange of a cash bond of Rs 20,000.
Ankit in his bail plea claimed that he was framed in false charges as he feels there were many contradictions in the victim's statement.
Ankit's bail application highlighted that the woman who claims her to be his girlfriend and has accused Ankit of raping her is married and has a child.
Ankit who made a big name in Bollywood with his hit song 'Sun raha hai na tu' from the movie Aashiqui 2 was arrested on May 8. The singer was arrested after the girl filed a case alleging that Aknit raped her repeatedly with the promise that he would marry her but later denied to do so.
Ankit's brother Ankur Tiwari was also arrested as he was accused of threatening the victim.
