She alleged that Tonu called her at his house at Rupnagar in Mirpur on May 6 while his wife was outside and raped her in presence of one of Tonu's friends.
A case was filed over the matter around 10:00pm on Friday.
Police sent Tonu to Metropolitan Magistrates' Court this morning seeking five-day remand for interrogation and the court will deliver its order in this regard later in the day, he said.
Tonu appeared in a number of movies including 'Full and Final', 'Gunda', and 'Khas Zamin'.
He also played the role of Satish in 'Karmaphal' based on the short story by Rabindranath Tagore.
