Jeetendra faces sexual harassment charges from cousin

In a shocking turn of events, a sexual abuse complaint has been filed against veteran actor Jeetendra by a female cousin.According to a report by India Today, the victim is from Himachal Pradesh and wishes to keep her identity a secret, mostly because the actor is a rich and influential member of the Bollywood community.

The woman has clarified that she only decided to file a police complaint now because her parents were no more and had they found this out about their nephew (Jeetendra) while they were alive, it would have devastated them.
The complaint, filed in Shimla, states that the victim was only 18 at the time the alleged incident occurred and Jeetendra was 28, ten years her senior.
He had sought permission from the victim’s father to take her along for a film shoot, where he eventually sexually abused her.
