Rape case against Alok Nath likely to be closed due lack of evidence?
When the #MeToo movement hit the Indian shores, several high-profile celebs were called out. Several victims called out their harassers on social media and one of them was television screenwriter and producer Vinta Nanda. She had shared the ordeal of her molestation at the hands of Alok Nath on her Facebook page. In fact, she went on to file an FIR against Alok and accused him of rape.
The latest development on the case suggests that the Oshiwara Police might file a closure report in the case as they weren’t able to find any evidence against Nath.
An officer from Oshiwara Police station told Mid-day, “We have recorded a detailed statement of the victim. Two witnesses were called to the police station a number of times but they haven’t yet recorded their statements.”
However, Vinta has not been informed about the closure of her case. Her lawyer Dhruti Kapadia told SpotBoyE, “We have not been intimidated, neither orally nor in writing. So, it would be just premature for me to say anything on this at this moment.”
Following the case filed against him, Nath was expelled from Cine and TV Artistes’ Association (CINTAA). The veteran actor had then filed a defamation suit against Nanda demanding a written apology, a compensation of Re 1 and a restraining order.
