Mumbai: A court here on Saturday granted anticipatory bail to actor Alok Nath in the Vinta Nanda rape case.
The 62-year-old had filed the plea for bail application in the Dindoshi Sessions Court on December 14, last year.
On November 21, a rape case was registered against Nath by the Mumbai Police, based on a complaint filed by the writer-producer, who accused him of raping her 19 years ago. The FIR was booked under Section 376 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).
Amidst the #MeToo movement, Nanda had narrated her horrifying ordeal in a Facebook post in October. She was the writer and producer of teleserial ‘Tara’ in the 90s, in which Nath played a lead role.
