Indian Spice has learnt that the Imbewu actor, Mishka Gounden has had her criminal case against Fahim Jamadar withdrawn after evidence could not be furnished to back up her claims.
#DURBAN: In what would have been the first week of the trial of Gounden vs. Jamadar in relation to the 2017/2018 sex tapes saga this was however not the case as Mishka Gounden withdrew her case.
Advocate Zain Mohamed retained by Jamadar in this matter explained that following the allegations leveled against his client were baseless. When Gounden’s legal team were asked to furnish proof of allegations, nothing was able to hold in court.
Quite recently, Gounden on the ETV soapie, Imbewu essaying the character of Mira portrayed the role of an abused victim highlighting the plight of gender-based crimes.
But in her real life story of an alleged assault and revenge-porn case against Fahim Jamadar was dropped.
Gounden made headlines within the South African community after her homemade explicit videos went viral on social media. The content trended on multiple major porn sites to which Gounden blamed Fahim Jamadar as the source of the leaked videos.
I CAN’T APPLY FOR JOBS BECAUSE PEOPLE THINK I’M A SKANK OR A SLUT WHO SENDS VIDEOS TO ALL SORTS OF PEOPLE … IT’S ONLY NOW I’VE STARTED BECOMING CONFIDENT WALKING OUT IN PUBLIC. IF I HAD TO GO TO AN INDIAN PLACE PEOPLE WOULD LOOK AT ME AND … ASK IF I’M THE SEX VIDEO GIRLMishka Gounden, Actor / City Press
Jamadar strongly denied her claims, both in his answering affidavit and to City Press in previous interviews. He (Jamadar) had accused his former friend and colleague at Lotus FM, Santosh Beharie of conspiring with Gounden to smear his name.
In an interview with City Press in 2018, Gounden claimed that former Lotus FM deejay, Fahim Jamadar asked her to send her explicit solo videos of herself during an alleged romance. Jamadar has denied all claims leveled against him stating a conspiracy was hatched between Gounden and her former line-manager at Lotus and alleged boyfriend, Santosh Beharie.
Said Jamadar in his response to Gounden’s allegations to City Press: “It has become more than evident that Ms Gounden and her rumoured boyfriend Santosh Beharie have conspired against me. She sent out these videos to numerous people sometime in 2016/2017, who have since come forward and confirmed this. However, without any evidence at all, [she] has accused me of making the videos viral now after Beharie lost his job. It is no mere coincidence that these allegations were lodged when Beharie’s contract was not renewed and there was talk about me filling the position.”
Beharie who was Program Manager at Lotus FM for a decade, also in July 2018 did not have his contract renewed. He took the SABC to the Commission for Conciliation, Mediation and Arbitration of which he lost his bid to return to Lotus FM. Gounden at the time was an on-air Lotus presenter, had her contract terminated also in July 2018 after the pornographic videos surfaced.
Gounden had also sought & obtained an interim protection order against Jamadar over an alleged assault incident. Gounden alleges that Jamadar assaulted her outside a Durban bar and restaurant, and apart from the case of crimen injuria, accusing him of leaking the private sex videos of herself.
What drove Mishka Gounden’s case to be withdrawn?
Indian Spice has had sight of signed affidavits from witnesses who claim that they have seen Gounden’s pornographic solo sex videos on social media prior to her alleged romance with Jamadar.
Mishka Gounden has claimed previously she made the explicit sex videos exclusively for and sent to Jamadar, in her interview to City Press.
However, the affidavits in Indian Spice’s possession show a different story as witness statements indicate that the very same videos were seen as early as 2016. Some witness statements admit to stumbling across Mishka Gounden’s explicit content on social media sites Instagram, Facebook, Youtube and Whatsapp in 2016.
One of the witnesses stated under oath that he has had nothing to do with sharing the explicit videos after Gounden accused him of sharing her sex tapes.
The affidavits also speak of a former work colleague who lamented over his short-lived romance with Gounden – where they worked together – detailing how she pursued him for information on Jamadar soon after he joined Megazone Radio.
In her comment to City Press Gounden stated the videos she ‘had taken of herself and sent only to a romantic interest, a man attached to Lotus, suddenly appeared on WhatsApp and spread through her conservative community.’
However, the witnesses sworn statement alleges that the multiple solo porn videos that surfaced in 2016 allude that Gounden did NOT shoot the explicit videos for Jamadar as she mentioned to City Press.
Jamadar speaking to Indian Spice stated, “I am relieved that the truth is beginning to emerge and I have been vindicated to a certain degree. I now pick up the pieces of a trying time that affected my family and myself immensely.
Speaking on his future plans Jamadar intends to sue for damages.
