Sexual assault complaint against Jeetendra

SHIMLA/MUMBAI: Police in Himachal Pradesh on Wednesday said they had received a complaint against actor Jeetendra over an alleged “sexual assault” almost five decades old.
A woman claiming to be related to the actor, whose given name is Ravi Kapoor, sent a two-page complaint to the HP director general of police seeking registration of a First Information Report (FIR) against him for a case of “sexual assault” when he was allegedly 28 and she 18. Advocate Rizwan Siddiquee, representing actor Jeetendra, said the complaint made baseless claims. He said, “Foremost my client categorically denies any such incident. Even otherwise such baseless, ridiculous and fabricated claims cannot be entertained by any court or police after a span of almost 50 years.”
