The Hush Post: Forty-seven years after the alleged incident and after her parents are no more to bear the ignominy and bear her suffering, veteran Bollywood actor Jeetendra’s cousin has accused him of sexually assaulting her. Jeetendra, whose real name is Ravi Kapoor, is the son of the victim’s father’s sister( bua’s son) . Shimla SP Omapaty Jamwal confirmed that a complaint had been received. The complainant has urged the police to keep her identity secret.
The victim said that it took her years to share her trauma and she finally decided to file a police complaint after her parents passed away. As per the complaint, the incident took place in January 1971, when the victim had just turned 18 and Jeetendra was 28. It happened when he “arranged” for the victim to join him from New Delhi to Shimla on the set of his movie without the complainant’s “awareness”. The victim claimed that on the night they reached Shimla, Jeetendra came to the room in an inebriated state, joined the two beds and sexually assaulted her.
Denying the allegations, Jeetendra’s lawyer Rizwan Siddiquee in Mumbai, has said that the allegations are baseless, ridiculous and fabricated. He also said the charges cannot be entertained by any court of law or law enforcement agencies after a span of almost 50 years. A copy of the complaint sourced from news agency IANS:
