Web Desk: Bollywood veteran past actor Jeentendra faces sexual harassment charges from cousin. The incident happened in January 1971, when the victim was 18 and Jeetendra was 28. But she filed the complaint after 47 years.

Jeetendra declared the charges as ‘baseless’ and ‘miserable effort by a jealous competitor to disrupt his business activities.”

According to his counsel Rizwan Siddique, “Foremost my client(Jeetandra) specifically and categorically denies any such incident.”

He claimed, “Such baseless, ridiculous and fabricated claims cannot be entertained by any court of law enforcement agencies after a span of almost 50 years.”

‘And limitation Act 1963 was specifically enacted to ensure that all genuine complaints are made within a maximum time limit of three years, so that a proper investigation is carried out and timely justice is delivered,” he added.
