Actress Kritika Sharma, who had accused casting director Vicky Sidana of sexual misconduct has faced a fresh hurdle as police has refused to file an FIR looking into the matter. Kritika recently came out with her #MeToo story and said that Vicky tried to rape her in 2013 and that experience left her shattered and it took her five long years to make the details public.

Apart from Kritika Sharma, two other women have accused Sidana of sexual harassment. Vicky has maintained his silence over this matter and has not made any statement in the public domain. Reports in a leading daily suggest that when the actress went to file FIR at the Versova police station, the police refused to file an FIR stating that as the incident is five-year-old, they will have to look into it first.

She further told the daily that she was asked to pick the FIR later in the evening post the written statement was recorded. However, when she went to the station later, she was informed that the FIR hasn’t been filed as they want to investigate first. Kritika later went to the police station with her husband again but the response was the same and she also mentions that the police cross-examined her during the questioning, which became too much and brought her to tears.
