Mumbai police sends summons to filmmaker Anurag Kashyap in sexual harassment case

Mumbai Police has issued summons to Anurag Kashyap in a sexual abuse case. 
Anurag Kashyap is scheduled to reach the police station on October 1. According to media reports, Anurag Kashyap will appear at the Versova police station at 11 a.m. on Thursday.

Bollywood actress Payal Ghosh has accused Anurag of 'raping' her seven years ago. A few days ago, Payal released a video and made shocking allegations against Anurag. Payal said in the video that he and Anurag Kashyap became friends through Facebook. After which she met Anurag. During the third visit, Anurag called Payal home and tried to rape him, Payal said. "A written complaint has been registered against Anurag Kashyap," Nitin Satput, the actress' lawyer, told our correspondent. A complaint has been registered under sections 376, 354 and 341 of the IPC.

Anurag Kashyap said that all the allegations made by Payal Ghosh were baseless. Many actresses, including Tapasi Pannu, came out in support of Anurag Kashyap. Explaining why she is in favor of Anurag, Tapasi said that Anurag is the biggest feminist. He has always believed in the equal rights of women. At the same time, Tapasi said that if Anurag is found guilty, he will be the first person to break up with her. Anurag Kashyap's two ex-wives also defended him. He called Payal's complaint the most absurd stunt.

On Monday, Payal Ghosh held a joint press conference with Republican Party of India president Ramdas Athavale and demanded the arrest of Anurag Kashyap. "Payal Ghosh has filed an application with the governor seeking security for himself and the arrest of Anurag Kashyap. Eight days after he lodged a police complaint, no action has been taken against Anurag Kashyap," said Ramdas Athavale.

Ramdas Athaval and Payal Ghosh met Mumbai Joint Commissioner of Police (Law and Order) Vishwas Patil to take action against Anurag Kashyap. In addition, the Governor of Maharashtra B.S. Koshiyari was also given an application form.
