Filmmaker Anurag Kashyap grilled for eight hours by cops; his lawyer denies allegations

A case was recently filed at Versova Police Station in Mumbai against filmmaker Anurag Kashyap by actress Payal Ghosh for wrongful confinement, rape and outraging the modesty of a woman under various sections of the IPC. In this regard, Anurag was summoned by police on Thursday and was grilled for almost eight hours. Later, on Friday morning, Kashyap’s lawyer Priyanka Khimani issued a long statement, once again denying the charges. She also said Anurag was in Sri Lanka at that time. The statement read, “Mr Kashyap has denied all wrongdoing in the matter and has provided his statement to the police. The material provided by Mr Kashyap, in support of his statement, demonstrates that the complaint of Ms Ghosh is an outright lie.”

The statement further read, “Mr Kashyap has provided documentary proof of the fact that throughout August 2013 he was away in Sri Lanka in connection with the shooting of one of his films. Mr Kashyap has categorically denied that any such alleged incident ever took place and has also denied all allegations levelled against him. These sudden, belated allegations of an alleged incident of August, 2013, have been widely publicised by the complainant for the purpose of vilifying Mr Kashyap, irrespective of the outcome of the judicial process. Mr Kashyap is confident that the falsity of the complaint has been exposed, not only by the evidence presented by Mr Kashyap, but also the ever-shifting version of events put forth by Ms Ghosh in the media.”

Payal wants lie detector Test

Meanwhile, Payal Ghosh claimed on Friday that filmmaker Anurag Kashyap has lied before the police while giving his statement. Payal wants lie detector, polygraph test and narco analysis to be performed on the filmmaker. “Mr Kashyap has lied before police in his statement… my lawyer is moving an application to conduct Narco Analysis, Lie Detector and Polygraph Test of Mr Kashyap to find out the truth…,” Payal tweeted from her verified account on Friday, tagging Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Home Minister Amit Shah and using the hashtag #BetiBachao with her post.
