A month after the writer-produte Vinta Nanda has been accused by actor Alok Nath of alleged rape for her, Cine and the TV Artistses Association (CINTAA) have expelled Nath on Tuesday for membership. CINTAA issued a statement on Twitter saying: "Given the various allegations of sexual harassment and misconduct against Mr Alok Nath, after careful examination and review of Exec. # The Cintaa Committee has decided to expel him from the association."
Speaking to the ANI, AIM Behl, Sr. Secretary-General CINTAA said: "CINTAA has expelled Alok Nath from his membership until he has yet announced when he did not respond to CINTAA. He had to appear before the ICC and the Executive Committee yesterday, but he did not worry. Now CINTAA has asked her to attend the annual general meeting on May 1 and, if he does not choose his views, he will be permanently expelled from CINTAA. "
In October, Nanda accused Alok Nath of rape. She talked about horrific checks on Facebook. She was the teleserial "Tara" writer and producer in the 1990s, where Nate took the lead.
After accusing her of rape, the actor subsequently filed a civil prosecution on charges of Nanda. He also requested a written apology, as well as remuneration for Re 1 and a restrictive order against Nand. However, Mumbai's Dindoshi Sessions Court rejected the application.
