Sept 30 (Agencies) | Publish Date: 9/30/2020 1:15:04 PM IST

 Film director Anurag Kashyap has been summoned by the Mumbai Police to appear at Versova Police station at 11 am on Thursday in connection with the sexual assault case filed by an actress.

On September 23, the actress had accused Kashyap of rape, outraging her modesty and wrongful confinement in 2013. Seeking help from Prime Minister Narendra Modi, she had claimed that Kashyap had also behaved inappropriately with three other actors.

An FIR was registered against Kashyap the same day after the actress and her lawyer approached the Versova Police station. He was booked under Indian Penal Code Sections 376 (I) (rape), 354 (assault or criminal force to woman with intent to outrage her modesty,), 341 (wrongful restraint) and 342 (wrongful confinement), the official said, adding that further investigation is underway.

Kashyap, who has been outspoken against certain policies of the central government, had issued a statement denying the allegations and called the actress’ claim an attempt to “silence” him for his outspoken views.

After the actress’ allegations, several female actors who had worked with Kashyap in the past came out in his support, including his ex-wife Kalki.

On Sunday, the actress and her lawyer Nitin Satpute had visited Versova police station to demand that the complaint be investigated as a matter of priority. She had also threatened to begin a hunger strike unless the police arrested Kashyap soon. On Monday, the actress met Republican Party of India chief Ramdas Athawale. The Union Minister of State for Social Justice and Empowerment later announced that the RPI would launch an agitation if Kashyap wasn’t arrested within a week.
