One of the major voices in the #MeToo movement, Vinta Nanda is fighting full throttle to get justice in her case against Alok Nath. After accusing the actor known for his 'Sanskaari' roles, of rape, the writer-producer has been knocking on the doors of all those who can help her. Vinta had filed a complaint at a police station in Mumbai recently and also written to the Prime Minister Narendra Modi to help her in the case.
Vinta has also approached the National Commission for Women later. After filing her complaint at the body, she spoke about initiating proceedings for quick action in her case and hoped they will look into the matter as soon as possible.
“I have initiated proceedings further for quick action in my matter as I have filed my complaint before NWC
today. Hope they will look into the matter as soon possible,” Vinta was quoted as saying.
Today, NCW acknowledged her complaint and the body is set to summon Alok Nath for a response soon. The entire process will take a few days before it takes the next concrete step. Previously, even other organisations like Cine & TV Artists Association (CINTAA) and Indian Film & Television Directors Association (IFTDA) had taken action in the row.
CINTAA had even held a press conference two days ago when they shared that they sent a show-cause notice to Alok Nath asking him why he shouldn't be sacked from the organisation. Responding to CINTAA's notice, the veteran actor had refuted all the allegations against him and asked them not to expel him until court directions. The IFTDA also served him a notice, which was 'rejected' by the lawyer, who said that no complaint was registered with any police department and that the allegations were on the basis of media interviews.
Vinta, in a shocking post on Facebook, had revealed that Alok Nath, who was the lead actor of her '90s hit 'Tara' then, allegedly harassed the writer-producer at her home.
