The list of alleged offenders in the ‘Me Too’ movement of Bollywood left everyone speechless. Writer-producer Vinta Nanda too came forward and accused ‘Sanskari’ actor Alok Nath for raping her 19 years ago. Though Alok Nath vehemently denied the allegations, Vinta went ahead and filed an FIR against him.

News agency ANI, confirmed the news by posting, “Mumbai Police Additional CP Manoj Sharma says ‘Oshiwara Police has registered an FIR against Alok Nath under section 376 of IPC (rape) on the complaint filed by Writer Vinta Nanda.”

Vinta had shared her ordeal in a lengthy Facebook post, where she accused Alok Nath of taking advantage of her and abusing her on several occasions. In her post, though Vinta had not taken Alok’s name directly but the instances that she shared clearly pointed fingers at him.

Citing reason why she didn’t open up in all these years in her post, Vinta had written, “The only reason I’m telling this story now is that I don’t want that any girl should ever fear to hold the truth back. What followed because of my silence was even worse. I became easy prey because the message had been put out that I was afraid and so I would not open my mouth. The couple of times that I wrote about what I had gone through created more complications because I stopped getting work. To deal with all the fear and shame I drank myself silly almost every evening and even flirted with drugs.”

Let’s see what Alok has to say about this FIR now. For more updates on this story stay tuned.
