Mumbai: Anticipating arrest in a rape case filed against him by television writer-producer Vinta Nanda, veteran actor Alok Nath has filed a pre-arrest bail plea in the Dindoshi sessions court.
The anticipatory bail application (ABA) came up for hearing before sessions judge S.S. Oza on Friday. However; a lawyer appeared in cou-rt on behalf of Ms Nanda and sought time to file an intervention application in the matter so that he could oppose the ABA. Following this req-uest, the judge adjo-urned the hearing on the plea till December 20.
The police had registe-red an FIR against Nath under sections of the IPC dealing with rape and unnatural offences.
