Yesterday, Mumbai Police registered an FIR against Alok Nath and booked him under section 376 of IPC (rape) after writer-producer Vinta Nanda filed a complaint against him. Vinta accused Nath of raping her 19 years ago. And now an FIR has been filed against casting director Vicky Sidana as well, following the sexual harassment allegations levelled against him by actress Kritika Sharma.
Kritika approached Police a month back to file an FIR. However, the Versova Police station denied filing her case. The actress later sent a complaint to the Ministry of Home Affairs, following which an FIR was finally filed against Vicky Sidana. He was booked under Section 354, 509 and 406.
News agency ANI posted, “Mumbai: FIR registered against casting director, Vicky Sidana in Versova police station last evening, under sections 354,509 and 406. He has been accused of sexual misconduct by actor Kritika Sharma”
