The 23-year-old actress, who had been staying in the rescue home from two months, was allowed to stay with her mother and brother in Mumbai.

A lower court earlier directed Shweta to continue her stay at the rescue home for six months as a part of 'rehabilitation’. However, the court allowed her mother to file a revision plea challenging the order.

According to police, the actress told the investigators that she turned to flesh trade as no new films were coming her way and she was broke. An assistant director in Telugu film industry, who allegedly acted as her agent, was arrested.

Shweta rose to fame after she won the National Award for Best Child Artiste in 2002 for her role in Vishal Bhardwaj’s Makdee. She later featured in Nagesh Kukunoor's 'Iqbal' as Shreyas Talpade’s sister.

She was also a well known face in the television industry and was known for her roles in serials like Kahani Ghar Ghar Ki and Karishma ka Karishma.
