Just imagine being a woman and getting raped by a man who after years was hailed as the most Sanskari man of Bollywood. It gives me chills to just think of what Vinta Nanda went through. For 19 years, she hid this dark secret because the society was apparently not ready to listen to her story.
Soon after, a lot of women mustered the courage to come out in the open, naming and shaming the sexual predators. From Vikas Bahl, Kailash Kher, Anu Malik, Subhash Kapoor, Subhash Ghai, Jatin Das and Sajid Khan among others, a lot of prominent personalities have come under the scanner for their sexual misconduct.
TV writer-producer Vinta Nanda had accused Alok Nath of rape and sexual harassment which took place about 19 years ago. She had recounted her account of rape on Facebook detailing the years of isolation, trauma and depression that she endured. Recently, she had lodged an official police complaint against Alok Nath in Mumbai. After filing the complaint, Vinta said that the police complaint has been accepted by the police and thanked the officials for their help.
His wife was my best friend. We were in and out of each other’s homes, we belonged to the same group of friends, most…
In the latest development, after Vinta’s FIR, it is being reported that Alok Nath is untraceable. “There was no one at his house to accept the summons letter issued to him last week.” After Nanda’s FIR, the source at the police station said.
“His [Nath’s] version is equally important in the case. Last week, we had issued summons to him so that the next level of investigation in the Vinta Nanda case can be initiated but he was not at home. We don’t know where he is!” the source added.
His counsel Ashok Saraogi informed that Nath had gone out of town for some important work. “The summons was issued but was not served as Nath is not in Mumbai. He will return to the city this week and will definitely visit Oshiwara police station. He is in touch with me, I have not read the contents of the summons” said Ashok Saraogi.
Meanwhile, Vinta is still willing to forgive Alok Nath, if he will apologize.
“I was never in this for revenge. I want correction, not revenge. Show some remorse, show some sign of repentance. Let me know that no other woman would be violated by you the way I was. All I see right now is an attitude of defiance and shamelessness. If that’s the way it is going to be, then I’ll see my fight for justice to the end.” Vinta said.
