Alok Nath granted anticipatory bail in Vinta Nanda’s rape case
Veteran actor Alok Nath was granted anticipatory bail yesterday in Mumbai session court. Writer-director Vinta Nanda had filed a rape case against Alok Nath in the wake of Me Too movement that shook the entire Entertainment world.
Last year Vinta Nanda in a long Facebook post had shared the ordeal that she went through because of Alok Nath. In her post, she stated that 19 years back Nath had raped her twice and misused his position(he was a very famous actor then) and threatened Vinta with dire consequences.
Nath denied all the allegations levelled against him by Nanda. However, Vinta Nanda went ahead and filed an FIR against the actor in October last year. According to a report in Mumbai Mirror, Nath’s lawyer called Nanda’s allegations as imaginary, comic book and fairytale. Vinta was a very close friend of Alok Nath’s wife Ashu. However, Ashu has sided with her husband. Both Ashu and Alok even filed defamation against Nanda for maligning their reputation.
After Vinta filed a case against Nath, the actor was expelled from Cine & TV Artistes Association last year. Also, questions regarding Alok not being dropped from Akiv Ali’s ‘De De Pyaar De’ started doing the rounds as soon as his name surfaced as an alleged offender in the Me Too movement.
