Rape case registered against Alok Nath

A rape case has been registered by police in India against a Bollywood celebrity.

Producer Vinta Nanda has lodged a complaint against actor Alok Nath, accusing him of raping her. She had raised the allegation in October, in a detailed Facebook post.

Mr Nath has denied the charge and also filed a defamation case against her. He has also been accused of sexual harassment by two other actresses.

This is one of the few police cases to be registered against someone named in India's #MeToo movement.
