Filmmaker Anurag Kashyap, on Thursday, reached the Versova Police Station in Mumbai, for questioning in the rape case filed by actor Payal Ghosh against him. The actor has alleged that the director ‘made her feel uncomfortable’ and harassed her in 2015 at his residence. On Thursday morning, Anurag and his lawyer Priyanka Khimani reached the police station at around 10 am.
Earlier last week, Payal demanded Anurag’s arrest in the case citing the trauma that she had to live with all these years. The actor said that she had talked about the allegations during the #MeToo movement also in 2018, but she was asked to delete the tweets, and posts by her team. Payal said that her team feared her ouster from the industry and refusal of films because of the allegations.
After getting support from actor Kangana Ranaut and Ramdas Athawle, the President of the Republican Party of India, Payal also met the Governor of Maharashtra, Bhagat Singh Koshyari, about her police complaint against Anurag Kashyap. While the actor has been demanding arrest, the Versova Police have stated that they are yet to investigate the matter, and collect evidence in the case.
