Mumbai: The Mumbai Police on Wednesday registered a rape case against actor Alok Nath on a complaint filed by TV writer-producer Vinta Nanda.

"The case was filed under under section 376 of IPC (rape) in the Oshiwara Police sattion," additional commissioner of police Manoj Sharma said.

In a social media post on October 8, Nanda alleged that a 'sanskari' actor had raped her 19 years ago.

Although Nanda did not name Nath in her post, social media identified the actor who is known for playing characters endorsing 'moral values' in films like Maine Pyaar Kiya, Hum Aapke Hain Koun!, Hum Saath Saath Hain and Vivah.

Later, Alok Nath filed a civil suit against Nanda, seeking Rs 1 as damages and an apology from her for defaming him.
