- Bollywood actor Jeetendra has been booked by the Shimla Police
- Police: Cousin accused Jeetendra of sexually assaulting her 47 years ago
- Jeetendra has denied all allegations
The woman, in a complaint to the director general of police, in February had alleged that the incident took place in Shimla in January, 1971, when she was 18 and the actor was 28.
Superintendent of Police Omapati Jamwal said an FIR had been filed against the star and investigations into the case were underway.
Police officials are likely to summon the complainant in the case as they have only received her complaint on e-mail and are yet to record her version, sources said.
Later, the actor, whose actual name is Ravi Kapoor, may be summoned to record his version in the case, they said.
She alleged in the complaint that after reaching Shimla at night, the inebriated actor went to her room, joined two twin beds and sexually assaulted her.
The actor denied that any such incident had taken place.
