Mumbai (Maharashtra) [India], Nov 21 (ANI): Mumbai Police have registered a first information report (FIR) against Alok Nath after writer-producer Vinta Nanda accused the actor of allegedly raping her.
Nath has been booked for rape under Section 376 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).
"The case has been registered at Mumbai's Oshiwara Police station under Section 376 of the IPC on the complaint filed by Vinta Nanda," said Additional Commissioner of Police (CP) Manoj Sharma.
Earlier in October, Nanda had lodged a complaint with police against actor Alok Nath, who allegedly raped and sexually harassed her in the 90s.
In the ongoing #MeToo movement, Nanda had narrated her horrifying ordeal in a Facebook post in October. She was the writer and producer of teleserial 'Tara' in the 90s, in which Nath played a lead role.
In the wake of these allegations, the 62-year-old actor Nath was recently expelled from the Cine and TV Artistes' Association (CINTAA). (ANI)
