An FIR has been registered under Section 376 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) against actor Alok Nath who has been accused of sexual assault by a veteran TV writer-producer.
The TV writer-producer in a Facebook post in October opened up about the incident that left her “shattered”. She then wrote, “I have waited for this moment to come for 19 years,” and continued to narrate the incident. “I remember being violated endlessly. When I woke up the next afternoon, I was in pain. I hadn’t just been raped, I was taken to my own house and had been brutalised. I couldn’t get up for my bed. I told some of my friends but everybody advised me to forget about it and move on.”
