Amidst the recent Bollywood unrest, actress Payal Ghosh made headlines a few days ago when she accused Anurag Kashyap of sexual misconduct allegations. Calling upon the help of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Amit Shah, Payal alleged that the filmmaker had forced himself on her in an incident that took place almost seven years ago. Since her tweet, the actress has lodged an FIR with the Mumbai Police and has also appeared for questioning. 

On Tuesday, she addressed a join press conference with Union Minister Ramdas Athawale and also met Maharashtra Governor today. Athawale has backed Payal Ghosh and agreed to provide security for her. He also warned of protests if no action was taken against the filmmaker. 

Athawale had said, "She (Payal) has dared to complain against Anurag Kashyap. Many actors came out in support of him, but Kashyap hasn't assaulted them. This is about Payal Ghosh and her experience. She will get protection from my party. We are hoping for action against the accused soon. I will be writing to Amit Shah soon. Kashyap should be arrested soon."

While Payal has voiced the alleged behaviour of the filmmaker, she has received support from the likes of Kangana Ranaut. However, Anurag Kashyap has denied all claims made by Payal. In a series of tweets, he had said, “It took so long to silence me. It’s okay. In an attempt to silence me, you ended up lying so much that you have dragged other women despite being a woman yourself. Maintain some decorum, madam. I just want to say that whatever your accusations are, they are baseless.”

If it is a registered complaint then yes it should be. However, there will be no forensic evidence now so the chances are any investigation will go against her unless he himself confesses should it have happened. Post PV.

Surely there must be normal procedural laws in place for such matters. What usually happens when a sexual assault claim is made to police and what are the time stipulations in the law. Regardless of who the persons involved are they are just people like thousands of others who have such grievances on a daily basis. Follow the usual procedures for such cases. Is this the first time the police have heard such a complaint that no one knows what procedural steps need to be followed. Unnecessary drama surrounding it.

The problem at hand is they need evidence to move ahead, just a statement is not enough.

Sure, investigate it and then put her in jail for lying and making a mockery of victims who actually suffer and don't get taken seriously because of opportunistic and shameless people like Ms. Ghosh, who trivialize serious issues like rape and s*xual harassment for their own gain.
