A day after a court granted actor Alok Nath pre-arrest bail in the rape case against him, stating that the possibility that he has been falsely framed in the crime cannot be ruled out, the accuser Vinta Nanda has questioned the decision.

According to a report in TOI, Nanda said in an interview that she respects the decision of the Court granting Alok Nath anticipatory bail, and believes in the law of the land.

She, however, added that like all other culprits Nath also denied the allegations against him.

Nanda went on to say that in his application for anticipatory bail, Nath had tried to mislead the court by cooking up stories, which were completely false and untrue.

2018: The Year Of #MeToo In India

27 Dec, 2018
2018 saw the rise of the #MeToo movement in India. Inspired by a global campaign against sexual harassment and assault, women across the spectrum opened up and shared their stories about abuse by men in positions of power. And it began in October with actress Tanushree Dutta accusing actor Nana Patekar of sexual harassment while shooting for the 2008 film 'Horn Ok Please'.What followed was a series of posts by other women who shared their experiences with the world. From actors, film directors to advertising top guns, artists and writers and politicians, women professionals called out obnoxious behaviour at the workplace. From unwanted attention in the office to sexual innuendos on the film set, there were many kinds of allegations that surfaced.While some of these are still struggling in the industry amidst the allegations, some succeeded in getting a clean chit from authorities. Recently, rumours surfaced that Patekar has been given a clean chit. However, the 'Aashiq Banaya Aapne' actress quashed the rumours. However, director Vikas Bahl, who was one of the prime accusees, has been set free from all charges against him. The internal complaints committee of Reliance Entertainment, today, set the 'Queen' director free, who was accused by an employee of Phantom films under the #MeToo movement.(In Pic: From top left, Nana Patekar, Aditi Mittal, Subhash Ghai, Anirban Das Blah.

The writer said that everyone who personally knew them know the truth and facts won't change. And while her battle in court was a solitary one, but CINTAA and her family know the truth.

She also stated CINTAA expelled the actor not just because of her incident, but due to multiple similar incidents.

Citing other names like Sandhya Mridul, Navneet Nishan, Himani Shivpuriji and Deepika Amin who too had hinted, but not openly spoken about Nath, she questioned if they were lying as well.

The writer, who had alleged that Nath raped her 19 years ago in a Facebook post last year, had filed a case in October 2018.
