Alok Nath who was accused by Vinta Nanda of sexual harassment filed a defamation case against her. Alok Nath and his wife took the legal route of suing Vinta Nanda and claimed that her accusations were false malicious.
The court proceedings began recently and Alok Nath made a plea to the Mumbai court seeking an injunction on screenwriter and producer Vinta Nanda from speaking publicly about the rape allegations she has levelled against him.
The Mumbai court rejected the plea made by the veteran. The Court observed that Alok Nath and his wife, who is defendant number one in the defamation suit, cannot claim to having been defamed.
To this, Vinta Nanda's lawyer Dhruti Kapadia said that the order is a great victory for women. "I am very glad that the court has passed this order. More women will come out and speak up now."
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. She had 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.
CINTAA had even held a press conference earlier 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.
