Versova Police summons Payal Ghosh for interrogation

Actress Payal Ghosh who recently leveled charges of sexual misconduct against filmmaker Anurag Kashyap, will be visiting the Versova police station today at 4 pm as she has been summoned by the Versova police for interrogation.

On September 21, the ‘Patel Ki Punjabi Shaadi’ actress was spotted arriving at the police station in Versova with her lawyer Nitin Satpute to lodge a complaint against Kashyap. Later, her lawyer released a statement on the same which read, “A written complaint has been lodged for the offence Rape, wrongful restrain, wrongful confinement and outraging the modesty of woman U/S 376, 354, 341, 342 of IPC and now the statement is being recorded of the victim.”

Meanwhile, Anurag has refused all the allegations of sexual misconduct against him by Payal Ghosh and took to his Twitter account to announce that he has been asked to remain silent. His lawyer has also released an official statement that reads, “My client, Anurag Kashyap, has been deeply pained by the false allegations of sexual misconduct that have recently surfaced against him. These allegations are completely false, malicious and dishonest. It is sad that a social movement as important as the #metoo movement has been co-opted by vested interests and reduced to a mere tool for character assassination. Fictitious allegations of this nature seriously undermine the movement and seek to unconscionably trade upon the pain and trauma of actual victims of sexual harassment and abuse. My client has been advised about his rights and remedies in law and intends to pursue them to the fullest extent – Priyanka Khimani’
