Amid the raging #MeToo campaign, the actor Alok Nath’s wife has gone ahead and filed an application in Mumbai court.
She has asked the police to investigate the allegations of rape leveled against him by actor-writer Vinta Nanda.
Alok Nath’s wife Ashu Nath has requested the court to order police to investigate the allegations against him.
This is in wake of Nanda sharing an account of being raped and violated by the actor almost two decades ago.
Her Facebook post opened more allegations of sexual misconduct against the Hum Saath Saath Hai actor.
Two other women have also come forward with their alleged #MeToo experiences with Mr Nath – actress Sandhya Mridul and a woman who worked on the crew of 1998 film.
Actress Himani Shivpuri, who has worked with Alok Nath in several films and in television, revealed that the industry has always been aware of the veteran actor’s alcohol-fuelled split personality.
The actor’s lawyer has said the allegations were an attempt to defame him.
