Veteran Bollywood actor Jeetendra, who gave some of the most memorable movies to the Indian cinema has been booked for sexual assault case at the age of 75.
Shimla police officials has put on charges of molestation on the Actor. The statement of Police Official read, “We have received a written complaint and a case has been registered under section 354 (assault or criminal force to woman with intent to outrage her modesty) of the Indian Penal Code against Jeetendra at the Women Police Station in New Shimla. A probe has been initiated.”
What more shocking is that the case is 47 years old and if Jeetendra found guilty, the maximum sentence under the section is two-year jail.
FYI…a woman filed a two-page complaint on February 7, alleging that she was molested by Jeetendra in 1971 in a Shimla hotel when she was only 18.
On behalf of the superstar his lawyer said,” the allegations are baseless and ridiculous. In an statement earlier, Jeetendra’s lawyer said that he (Jeetendra) denies any such incident took place.Rajasthan Tourism App - Welcomes to the land of Sun, Sand and adventures
