Claims allegations an 'afterthought', Nath might go to court for defamation

Calling the allegations against his client and film and television actor, Alok Nath, 'false' and 'an afterthought', top criminal lawyer Ashok Saraogi said it is deliberate defamation.

Addressing mediapersons, Saraogi said about the allegations, that they are wrong. He explained, “There was some conflict in the serial (referring to 'Tara'). The heroine (Navneet Nishan) complained.

“Socha hum bhi bhadaas nikaalte hain” (using the ongoing MeToo movement). “Jaan bujh ke badnami ho rahi hai. Sirf badnaam karna chahte hain,” (They thought they will also remove their frustration. Purposely defamation is being done. They just want to spoil reputation).

The actors' advocate said Alok Nath might file a police complaint and might go to court for defamation. He questioned why the women are coming out after 19 years suddenly.

He went on to say 'Supporters khade kiye honge' (supporters may be planted). When asked why the actor, known for performing fatherly roles in multi-starrer films of the '90s, is hiding from the media, Saraogi said in support of his client that it is a legal matter and every word is important. Saraogi also went on to say that once termed a 'victim', the women should not come out in the media. He claimed that  the women are creating a 'media trial' and told the mediapersons that he has advised Nath not to come out in media.

He further said that Alok Nath is not hiding, is at home and was shocked when the allegations were made, but that now his health is 'okay'.

After writer-producer Vinta Nanda's coming out of social media about her harrowing ordeal of alleged rape by Nath, actor Sandhya Mridul is the second woman to have named and shamed him in a post on Twitter. Mridul was cast as the daughter of Nath in a telefilm. She has accused him of trying to force himself into her hotel room. Lead actor in '90's serial 'Tara', of which Nanada was writer-producer, Navneet Nishan said in a statement that she had dealt with four years of harassment by slapping Nath, though she did not name him.
