The filmmaker has reached Versova Police station in Mumbai to appear before the police. Ghosh accused the filmmaker of allegedly ‘raping’ her seven years ago. In an exclusive interaction with Etimes, Payal’s advocate Nitin Satpute said, ”The written complaint that has been lodged is for the offence of rape, wrongful restrain, wrongful confinement, and outraging the modesty of women under sections 376, 354, 341, and 341.”
The actress and her lawyer visited the Versova police station on September 27. She even threatened to go on a hunger strike if strict action against Kashyap is not taken.
On Monday, she met Ramdas Athawale, who later announced that the Republican Party of India (RPI) would launch an agitation if Kashyap was not arrested within a week.
Payal met Maharashtra governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari on Tuesday seeking Y-category security. Her advocate Nitin stated, “We have given a letter to the governor seeking protection, and informed him about the case. Ramdas Athawale ji also requested him to look into the matter because the police are not doing anything. He assured us that he is concerned about atrocities against women happening in the state and will be looking into the matter. I have asked for Y-category security for Payal and myself. Payal has threat to her life and I am protecting her, so I am also vulnerable from anti-social elements.”
