Defamation Suits Won't Intimidate Vinta Nanda: Lawyer On #MeToo Allegation

Alok Nath is supposed to reply by Monday evening and to IFTDA by Thursday.


Mumbai: 

Writer-producer Vinta Nanda will remain undaunted in her fight against the sexual violation she faced 19 years ago even if defamation suits come her way, her lawyer said on Monday, a day after actor Alok Nath's wife Ashu Singh reportedly moved a court seeking a police probe into the "Tara" writer's accusation.

Ms Nanda has accused Alok Nath of rape.

Dhruti M Kapadia, Ms Nanda's advocate, in a statement said they are going to fight out the matter legally, and said the "defamation proceedings are not served upon us as yet".

"However and whatever the proceedings will be, we will deal with everything following due process of law," Ms Kapadia added.

Vinta Nanda is awaiting decisions of various association like Cine and TV Artistes Association (CINTAA), Screenwriters Association (SWA) and Indian Film and Television Directors Association (IFTDA).

Alok Nath is supposed to reply to CINTAA by Monday evening and to IFTDA by Thursday.

"Pursuant to decisions we will further decide our next step of action. It is pertinent to note my client is further humiliated in continuity for which we will legally take recourse. She will not be deprived of any legal help she seeks. My client will not be intimidated by threats and defamation suits which are primarily meant to delay and distract from the gravity of the allegations," Ms Kapadia said.
