Alok Nath responds to CINTAA; denies all allegations against him
After Vinta Nanda’s rape accusations against Alok Nath, many women have mustered the courage to speak up about their own ordeals with the actor. After that, CINTAA (Cine And TV Artistes’ Association) sent a show-cause notice to the actor asking him to give a proper reason on rape allegations so that he doesn’t get expelled from the membership.
Today Alok Nath’s lawyer, Ashok Saraogi mentioned that his client has responded to CINTAA’s show cause notice denying all sexual harassment allegations against him. His statement read, “Your letter indicates that my client should show show-cause as to why he should not be expelled from membership of your association. All charges levelled against him for alleged sexual assault were alleged to have taken place between 1998 and 1999. Please know that the contents of the letter are false. No such charge has been levelled against my client in front of a competent authority.”
Alok Nath and his wife Ashu Alok Nath had filed a Re 1 defamation case against the producer Vinta Nanda on October 12. The matter had to get investigated under the Code of Criminal Procedure (CRPC) section 155 and sections 499, 500, 34 and 114 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC). The statement also mentions, “Please note levelling of any charge or allegation against a person does not mean that the person is guilty.”
Alok Nath was also accused by actresses Sandhya Mridul and Deepika Amin of sexual harassment. Tanushree’s allegations on Nana Patekar has rattled the entire industry and more cases like these are coming out every day.
