AMN / Shimla /Mumbai

Bollywood actor of yesteryears Jeetendra was on Wednesday accused of sexually harassing his cousin, who has come forward to file a police complaint after 47 years of the incident, police said.

‘We are getting similar queries from the public,’ a Police Officer told media.

The victim made a police complaint, forwarded to Himachal Pradesh’s Director General of Police.

The woman said that she is the daughter of Jeetendra’s maternal uncle. She filed the complaint with Himachal Pradesh’s director general of police. She said that at the time of the incident, she was 18 and Jeetendra was 28.

The alleged incident took place in January 1971, when Jeetendra “arranged” for his cousin, without her knowledge, to join him in Shimla at the sets of a film, according to the complainant. On the night after they reached Shimla, Jeetendra allegedly entered their room in an inebriated state and sexually assaulted her, she has claimed in her complaint.

Jeetendra denies allegations 

Jeetendra on Wednesday denied the allegations of sexual assault made against him by his cousin. The complainant had claimed that the actor had sexually assaulted her nearly five decades ago in Shimla.

“Foremost, my client specifically and categorically denies any such incident,” Rizwan Siddiquee, the lawyer representing the actor, said. “The law does not give any person any rights or liberties of making any baseless, ridiculous or fabricated claims against any man publicly and seek to defame him with a hidden personal agenda.”
