The arrest took place after a complaint was filed against him at the Versova police station.
Reports suggest that he has been charged with rape under section 376.
The Beyhadh actor made headlines recently when he filed for divorce with his wife Akangksha Rawat. Some news reports suggested the reason behind their separation was Piyush’s extra-marital affair with his colleague (creative team) from the show Beyhadh.
Confirming reports of divorce, Piyush had said, “Yes, it is true that Akangksha and I have filed for separation. The divorce is already in process. But all other rumours, especially about an extra-marital affair are untrue.”

SpotboyE.com has learnt that the same girl has dragged Piyush to court. Recently, Piyush also shared news of his social media account getting hacked. He issued a public statement on Facebook apologising to his friends and followers, for receiving abusive texts from his account."From last night, my friends and others are receiving abusive messages from my social media account. I have lost accessibility of my Facebook account. It has been hacked. However, I have reported the problem," Piyush said in a statement. "My e-mail account is also not under my accessibility. I hope it doesn't get misused," he added.
According to our source, there was NO HACKER. Piyush purposely put out the post to cover up for the messages he sent to the girl, via FB messenger and email.
When contacted by Bombay Times, Piyush's estranged wife, actress Akangsha Rawat, said, "I have not been in touch with Piyush since the last four months. So, I am not aware of anything." The two have been living separately since April this year, and last month, she filed a police complaint for cruelty and harassment against him.
