Actor Alok Nath’s anticipatory bail plea has been rejected. Alok Nath was accused of sexual harassment and rape by screenwriter and producer Vinta Nanda. He had applied for an anticipatory bail at the Dindoshi Sessions Court.
In much relief (for Nanda), the Mumbai’s Sessions Court rejected his plea. This decision gives the judiciary and the police the right to arrest him as per law when required.
A group of senior lawyers had flown down to Mumbai from Delhi to file the anticipatory bail on his behalf. The actor remained out of ‘out of reach’ and wasn’t seen after a notice was served to him by the Oshiwara Police.
Alok has also been ousted by CINTAA. This, since he failed to appear before the board despite several warnings. The board was to hear his side of the story before drawing to a conclusion. But his evasiveness led the Board to throw him out.
Vinta opened up about the rape incident in the aftermath of the MeToo movement which was spearheaded by Tanushree Dutta in India. Vinta in an FB post recounted the horror without naming the person but defined him as the “most sanskari” person. And that was enough for everybody close to Vinta and people in the film fraternity to understand who the Sanskari man was.
