New Delhi, Dec 8: Days after she was given clean chit by Metropolitan Sessions Court in a prostitution case, Telugu actress Shweta Basu Prasad has lashed out at media in an open letter. The ‘Makdee' actor said she was innocent but the media falsely accused her in the case.
In an open letter posted on her Twitter account, the 23-year-old star said she was sad with the way things played out in the media.
"I understand that everything was a chain of reaction and versions of the incident with several misleading stories were picked up along with my... wait, not my statement... for the rest of India or anyone, anywhere on planet, for the last time: This is not my statement," she said.
Shweta was arrested on charges of prostitution from a Hyderabad hotel. She was sent to a rescue home for 59 days after a prostitution racket allegedly involving her was busted.
On December 5, the Metropolitan Sessions Court in Nampally, Hyderabad, gave the actress a clean chit in the case by withdrawing charges and stay order against her that was made by a trial court.
