This is one of the few police cases to be registered against someone named in India's MeToo movement, which has gained momentum in recent months.
The actor has also filed a civil defamation suit against the Ms Nanda, after she accused him of sexual harassment. He had sought a written apology, along with a compensation of  a restraining order against the writer-producer.

      In October, Ms Nanda accused the popular actor of sexual harassment and rape in a detailed Facebook post.

   Mr Nath has denied the charge and also filed a defamation case against her.
Earlier a sessions court in Mumbai had rejected the application by Alok Nath's wife, seeking an injunction order against Vinta Nanda, who accused him of rape and sexual harassment. The actor's wife appealed to the court that Ms Nanda be directed to refrain from speaking to the media or making statements against Alok Nath.
