Past comes back to haunt Jeetendra

The Bollywood veteran has been accused by his cousin of sexually assaulting her when she was 18. According to Indian media reports, Indian police have registered an FIR against Jeetendra for a sexual assault incident that took place 47 years ago. The actor's cousin claims that he had arranged for a meet from New Delhi to Shimla at the set of his shoot. During her stay, he returned to the hotel room drunk and assaulted her. He was 28 at the time.

The police stated that “an FIR under section 354 IPC has been registered at Chotta Shimla police station. After her email, we got in touch with the complainant, who later had also sent us a written complaint to support her version”. However, the officials have said that the investigations will take place under the old law provisions of 1971 when the alleged assault took place. The complainant has not yet provided details of the incident; like the name of the hotel and proof of her stay.
