Story highlights

Nath on Monday also responded to the CINTAA notice and refuted the allegations that have been made by Nanda against him. 

Actor Alok Nath responded to the show-cause notice on Monday that has been sent to by the Indian Film and Television Directors’ Association. The notice was sent to the actor after writer-producer Vinta Nanda accused him of raping her 20 years back. 

The actor, in his response, said that he is not liable or answerable to any organisation since no formal police complaint has been filed by the accused.

The response sent to IFTDA by Alok Nath’s lawyer reads, “My client states that however, in the present case, there is no complaint at all made with any of the police authorities nor filed with any of the legal authorities save and except making interviews and some complaints on social media.”

“Please note that since till date, there is no such initial complaint made by any of person including the said Smt Vinta Nanda, the question of my client being liable to show any case before your association does not arise,” the notice further added.

Nath on Monday also responded to the CINTAA notice and refuted the allegations that have been made by Nanda against him. 

After Nanda called out the actor in an emotional post on Facebook, two other women have come out and spoken about being harassed by Nath on film sets. Nath is yet to respond to those allegations.
